Join Countertop Investigator for learning and networking over breakfast or afternoon tea with other property professionals to understand how the community sector is using the new ‘Community Rights’ powers under the Localism Act to bring forward community asset development projects.
Hosted in a modern and dynamically run community facility this learning event will cover:
Policy – a briefing on the Localism Act focusing on the Community Rights in general and the Community Right to Bid and to Build in particular.
Practice – an opportunity to learn about the impact of the transfer of an underused asset to a dynamic community enterprise Witton Lodge Community Association which has revitalised the Perry Community Hall as part of an asset transfer agreement with Stratford Town Council. In Stratford we’ll look at how the Great Meadows Mash Partnership Trust has taken on the former boots social club to generate an income to support its regeneration work in the community.
Locality Brokers, a new pilot service, is working with property professionals and community led initiatives to help reduce the early stage risks inherent with community led projects and prepare for capital investment.
Over some light refreshments the event will provide an opportunity for networking, help your company consider its corporate social responsibility contributions and how it can develop its community sector client base.
The events are free, however a $5 or $10 donation is requested to support the work of our hosts.
