Make up your own mind on this one on take up of community “rights”!

17 Mar

Particularly:

…..”

  • Community Right to Bid: Since this right was introduced in 2012, 900 communities had made use of it “to initiate dialogue and action around the places and spaces that mean most to them”. In 57 communities, the sale of the community asset in question had been put on hold for an initial six-month period. However, in just six cases had the community purchased the asset directly.”

and

…..”The Government said it was also seeking to improve transparency around dates for key local authority meetings, to enable people to be more involved in local decision making. It said that, to support this, it would soon be publishing a revised local transparency code.”

Not taking any bets that a “revised local transparency code” will change our lives for the better.
