Community Asset Transfer

Community asset transfer is about giving local people and community groups greater control in the future of their area and their community.

If local groups own or manage community buildings, such as community centres or village halls, it can give them a real asset base to support their development. It can also play a part in improving the skills of the people involved and encourage a stronger community spirit by bringing people from different backgrounds together to work towards a shared goal.

We are committed to working with community groups and local people to ensure that community asset transfer in the Wakefield district is successful and sustainable in the long-term.

When our property becomes surplus, in accordance with the Community Transfer Policy, it may be appropriate for the council to invite interests from parties who may wish to operate community assets.

Interested parties are encouraged to contact the council as soon as possible for advice about the application process.
