Community Asset Transfers

Is your local pitch or pavilion at risk of closure? 

Now you can do something about it

Did you know that you can use new community rights to protect your local sports pitch, pavilion, sports hall, or swimming pool?

Did you know that these rights can also give you the right to bid to buy that facility?

With increasing pressure on local authority spending, using community rights represent an opportunity for you to take control.

Find out more on the Sport England website.

There have been a number of Community Asset Transfers in Cumbria, such as Wigton Pool which has changed ownership from Cumbria County Council to Wigton Baths Trust. If your facilities are owned by Cumbria County Council, help and guidance is available on their webiste.

Further information about Community Asset Transfer, or registering your facilities as an asset of community value to safeguard them for the future including help with financing can be found on the Community Rights and Locality website.
