The Community Right to Bid is included within the Localism Act, which aims to devolve power to local communities. The right to bid gives community groups the opportunity to buy community buildings and facilities that are important to them.
Our Community Right to Bid Policy Statement sets out how this right will be administered locally.
Our frequently asked questions provide additional guidance.

Full moratorium triggered - Three Horseshoes Public House, Letchmore Heath
On 10 June 2013 we received notification from the owners of the Three Horseshoes Public House in Letchmore Heath of their intent to sell the property.
The Three Horseshoes is included on our List of Assets of Community Value, therefore an interim moratorium was triggered.
A request to be treated as a potential bidder was received from Aldenham Parish Council on 1 July 2013. This brought into force the full moratorium. The pub now cannot be sold before10 December 2013 except to a community interest group. However, after 10 December 2013, the owners are free to dispose of it as they wish. They do not have to give first refusal to a community interest group.
