Proposals to help communities take on local assets in Wales

The Welsh Government is consulting on protecting community assets across Wales. It is considering developing a bespoke Welsh law to help communities bid for, own and run assets transferred from the public and private sectors, such as  halls, churches, playing fields, pubs and post offices.

Alternative proposals include strengthening existing guidance on community assets, or mirroring the current situation in England (Localism Act 2011).
