Assets of Community Value and Community Right to Bid

Assets of Community Value (ACVs) are buildings, land and amenities across South Norfolk that are important to the people that use them.

The closure or sale of these places (assets) can sometimes damage communities, but now community groups have the opportunity to retain the assets that matter to them. 

The Localism Act gave community groups the opportunity to nominate land or buildings in their area which they think are of community value, to be included on a list held by the relevant council.

If, once the asset has been listed, the asset is put up for sale, the community will be given the opportunity to purchase it, through Community Right to Bid (CRTB).
