The site is part of our new support service to help people get the most from the new Community Right to Build. Rights to Build allows communities to approve new local developments without the need to go through the normal planning application process.
Our online support service will assist you whether you are getting started, looking for legal advice, information on a business case or have a specific question for a Community Right to Build expert. Community Rights experts can provide you with bespoke support via a free advice service.
Chief executive of Locality, Steve Wyler, said:
“Locality fought hard to shape the Localism Act. We believe in self-reliance and community ownership. The new Community Right to Build presents incredible opportunities for people to have a greater stake in their area. If you can see the potential of new buildings for community benefit we’re here to help, support you through the process and make things happen, enhancing local pride and prosperity.”
The Community Right to Build is one of four rights contained in the Localism Act.
The support services are funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government with the Community Right to Bid and to Challenge in effect from June/July 2012.
