Community asset transfer is about helping local people and community groups to influence the future of their area and their community. One way to achieve this is to transfer assets from North Lincolnshire Council to be managed by local community groups, social enterprises or voluntary groups.
We want to work with community groups and local people so that community asset transfer in North Lincolnshire is successful. The council has many assets. These include various buildings and individual plots of land. Some of these play a vital role in local life.
We want to see these assets managed in the best interests of the community. We are keen that these various assets are used to their fullest potential to support the development of strong communities across North Lincolnshire and to encourage volunteering. We therefore want to encourage communities to make use of these assets, where this can provide mutual benefit.
More details about how a community group, local enterprise or voluntary group can apply to manage community assets can be found in our asset transfer policy [DOC, 91kb].
