Community groups have a legal right to apply to the council to nominate local assets as being valuable to the community.
If the nomination is successful, when the asset comes up for sale, community groups that wish to buy the asset will be given 6 months to make a bid.
It gives voluntary and community groups the chance to save important local places like pubs, libraries and village shops.
The quickest way to nominate an asset as important to the local community is to complete the nomination form online.
Alternatively, you can download the nomination form (PDF, 468KB) and return it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Barry Smith, Head of City Policy and Strategy, 15th Floor Westminster City Hall, 64 Victoria Street, London SW1E 6QP.
Please read the guidance below before completing a nomination form; these documents provide useful advice in developing a nomination. We also recommend reading the guidance provided by My Community.
