Who you are

Please provide the following details about your organisation

Please tell us the position in the organisation that you, the person filling in this form, hold.

Please select from the dropdown list below. Details of the types of organisations which are eligible to apply are outlined below for your reference.

Parish Councils: this may be for an asset in its own area, or in the neighbouring parish council.

Neighbouring Parish Councils: if the parish council borders a un-parished area, then they may nominate an asset within the neighbouring district council or unitary council.

Unincorporated Groups: nominations can be accepted from any unincorporated group with membership of at least 21 local people who appear on the electoral role within the local authority, or a neighbouring local authority. This will for instance enable nomination by a local group formed to try and save an asset, but which has not yet reached the stage of acquiring a formal charitable or corporate structure.

Neighbourhood Forums: there can only be one neighbourhood forum for an area and the way they are set up is clearly defined by the Council as a planning authority. The procedure for forming a neighbourhood forum is set out in Section 61F of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

Community Interest Groups with a local connection: these must have one or more of the following structures:

  1. A charity
  2. A community interest company
  3. A company limited by guarantee that it is non-profit distributing
  4. An industrial and provident society that is non-profit distributing (these groups will be renamed as community benefit societies by the Cooperative and Community Benefit Societies and Credit Unions Act 2010) e.g. co-operative societies.
