Community Rights work
The introduction of Community Rights (Right to Buy, Challenge and Build) offers new opportunities for voluntary and community groups to have a say and a stake in their local area - but do they really know what they mean?
Our members think that community rights have the potential to improve local services and help local groups to have a voice, but there is trepidation about the potential to fractionalise services and further disadvantage some marginalised communities.
Urban Forum is working as part of a consortium of organisations to deliver more information on the new Community Rights through its partnership with Locality and the MyCommunityRights service and a series of nine free events held around England.
The MyCommunityRightsonline hub is run by Locality and takes you through each of the Community Rights - Right to Bid, Right to Challenge and Right to Build - as well as the Neighbourhood Planning agenda and explains Community Asset Transfer.
