This policy sets out the our position on Community Asset Transfer (CAT) and provides a list of assets that are potentially available for CAT.
Copeland Borough Council has long recognised the benefits of CAT and this is demonstrated by a long standing policy position supporting CAT in Copeland as well as a number of real examples across the Borough.
The Council knows that the way physical assets are managed can have a positive impact on the long term strength of local communities. Through asset ownership, community organisations can grow and become more secure, gaining access to sources of additional investment that the Council itself is not able to access. Our policy enables community organisations to become more sustainable on a long term basis.
