The group bidding to take on the running of its local market finds out from the council’s website how the council deals with the Community Right to Challenge. They download the Expression of Interest form from the website and fill it in. Their argument is simple and focuses on three elements:
- they can save the council some money
- will increase the usage of the market
- they project that they will generate some small surpluses after the first year which they would put into other local improvement projects in the town.
They submit their expression of interest and wait for the council’s response at Step 5.
