Adoption and Implementation of the new Community Asset Transfer Policy



The Executive approved the adoption of the Community Asset Transfer Policy, asset out in Appendix 1 to the report, incorporating the updated wording to page 7. subparagraph 6 as set out in the Supplementary Information Sheet.


·         The Council did not currently have a policy on the transfer of assets to community groups.

·         To deliver community objectives.

Other options considered and rejected by the Executive:

Do nothing – Do not adopt the policy. This would not address having a consistent decision-making process and community groups and Council officers would not have a clear procedure to follow if a group wished to submit an expression of interest
