Community-led spaces

A guide for local authorities and community groups

A guide to the issues involved in transferring ownership and management of public space from local authorities to community groups.

Cover of Community-led spaces: A guide for local authorities and community groups

Transfer of public space ownership and management from local authorities to community groups is on the rise.

Local people want a greater say in how their local parks and public spaces are managed and, as budgets tighten, local authorities want to maximise the help that communities can offer.

Community-led spaces: a guide for local authorities and community groups is an introduction to the issues involved, based on the learning from a range of case studies across England.

The Asset Transfer Unit's website provides information for both local authorities and communities on all aspects of community asset transfer activity.
