Community asset transfer requests received

We publish information on the Community Asset Transfer requests that we receive.

CAT Stage 1 and Stage 2 applications in progress

Stage 1 of our Community Asset Transfer process is an expression of interest which allows us to check title and collate information which is useful to the community transfer body in developing a business plan. A Ward Officer is also allocated to support the group at this point.

Stage 2 involves a formal application accompanied by the community transfer body's business case, which will give an indication of social return on investment and a financial plan demonstrating how the community transfer body will sustain the running of the property.

There are currently 53 applications in progress:

Further information

Further information on the community asset transfer applications we've received will be included in a report that is published each year and sets out:

  • how many asset transfer requests were received
  • how many requests were agreed or refused
  • whether agreed requests resulted in transfer of ownership, lease or conferral of other rights
  • how many appeals have been allowed, dismissed or resulted in a decision being reversed or changed
  • how many reviewed decisions have been confirmed, modified or substituted by a different decision
  • what we've done to promote the use of asset transfer requests and support community transfer bodies to make requests.

The 2017/18 report was agreed by our Communities Committee on Tuesday 5 June 2018.
