Community assets and ownership

The resources in this hub have been designed to help you protect, save, or manage a community space or community asset in your local area.

When we talk about a community asset or space we mean buildings or land which are used for the well-being or social interest of the local community. These may include parks and open green spaces, libraries, cinemas and other cultural spaces, swimming pools and other leisure facilities, community centres, youth centres, nurseries or pubs.

Community ownership ensures that local people have control over the buildings and spaces that have significance to them and that these spaces are used in ways that meet the priorities and needs of the local community.
