Assets of Community Value (ACV)

Course Description

Under the Localism Act 2011, Parish Councils and community groups can nominate an asset to be registered on the assets of community value register giving communities the opportunity to collate a bid for an asset should it be sold on the open market. All communities have assets that are of great importance to them but do they all qualify as an Asset of Community Value? You'll hear directly from North/West Northamptonshire Council to know what is needed when submitting a nomination for an ACV.

This is an interactive course  and offers the opportunity to network with Councillors from Councils across Northamptonshire to share best practice and ideas. 

Key areas covered in this course include:

  • Background to ACV

  • Summary of Legislation including key points

  • Unitary Authority Role as arbitrator of process

  • Unitary Authority Policy and process

  • Parish & Town Councils role

Who Should Attend
Clerks, officers and councillors wanting to understand the process for idenitying and registering ACV's are welcome to attend.
