Community Asset Transfer

Community Asset Transfer involves the transfer of ownership and/or management of land or buildings from a statutory body (such as the Council) to a community based organisation or group (such as a charity or community interest company) at less than market value for local social, economic or environmental benefit.

If you are interested in asset transfer it is useful to:

  • gather evidence to show how the community and local people will benefit from the transfer 
  • gather evidence of community support for the transfer 
  • check that the land and buildings in question would be able to generate enough income to fund repairs, maintenance and ongoing operational costs.

If you want to proceed with a Community Asset Transfer, we will require you to submit a Stage 1 application form, and subject to that being appropriate, develop a business case to show that the community is capable of maintaining and operating the land or building into the future.

Please note: The Council’s procedures for Community Asset Transfer within the Bradford District are currently being reviewed.
