Nominating an asset of community value

Download form

You can nominate an asset of community value if you are an eligible community or voluntary group.

An asset can be owned publically or privately, and could be, for example:

  • a local shop
  • a pub
  • a community centre
  • a library
  • a park
  • an open space

The asset needs to meet the criteria in the Localism Act 2011 to be successful.

To complete the nomination form, you will need details of:

  • the nominating group
  • the asset you are nominating, and its use    
  • the ownership and occupiers of the asset you are nominating

  • the reasons you are nominating the asset

You need to include supporting evidence with your nomination. 

We do not provide advice or assistance with nominations, and we recommend that you seek independent legal advice.

We assess each nomination we receive against:

You can download our flowchart to see the process we follow once we receive a nomination.

If your group or the asset you are nominating is not eligible, your nomination will not be successful.

We have a checklist of the issues we consider before we list an asset.
