Is Key decision?: Yes

To formally agree Community Asset Transfer policy and process.


RESOLVED (unanimously) that the Cabinet agreed to:


1)  Note the outcomes of the consultation on the draft document as set out in Appendix 3. 

2)  Confirm that the feedback received through the consultation process has been accurately reflected and is now incorporated into the current draft of the Community Asset Transfer Policy and Guidance (attached at Appendix 1), and agree the new document.

3)  Thank those who responded to the consultation and agree to circulate the outcomes of the process and next steps.

4)  Approve that the implementation of the policy be reviewed within twelve months of operation to make any further refinements required.

Reasons for the decision:

It is considered appropriate that, given that a number of asset transfers have been completed or are in development since Council adopted its programme in 2013, a formal Policy document be adopted to secure future sustainability of schemes and clarity of approach.

Alternative options considered:
