Community Right to Bid for Assets of Community Value (ACV)

The Community Right to Bid allows eligible community groups and parish councils to nominate a building or land to be listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).

A building or land is considered an ACV if its main use has recently been, or is currently used to further the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community and could do so in the future.

If the listed ACV comes up for sale, the community can ‘pause’ the sale and take up to six months to find the funding required to buy the asset.
