Community Asset Transfer
Plans for the community asset transfer of the former toilet block on Butler's Green are on the Brent Council website reference 18/0541. We are pleased that STRA was granted planning permission for change of use of this building to a pavilion, which will benefit our community, on 24 April 2018.
We will use this page to keep you abreast of further developments. Watch this space!
What is community asset transfer?
Community Asset Transfer is the transfer of management and/or ownership of public land and buildings from its owner (usually a local authority) to a community organisation (such as a Development Trust, a Community Interest Company or a social enterprise) for less than market value – to achieve a local social, economic or environmental benefit.
Thousands of buildings and spaces across England, such as swimming pools, town halls, libraries and parks, have all been taken on and successfully managed by community organisations for the benefit of their local community.
There are several legal options for Community Asset Transfer, but most tend to be long term leasehold arrangements (25+ years at a ‘peppercorn’ rent) to enable external funding to be secured, although a shorter term might be more appropriate as a ‘stepping stone’ to a more substantial agreement in the future.
