Communities can request Broadland District Council to list buildings or land as Assets of Community Value. Residential property cannot be listed. Assets must be shown to further the social wellbeing or social interest of the local community. If accepted then, if the aaset is put up for sale (not as a going concern,) the community gets a 6-week interim period during which they must express an interest in bidding. There is then a 6-month moratorium to allow the community to put a bid together.
There is no community right to BUY the asset, just to BID.
