A summary of responses has been published by CLG following a consultation on proposals under the Localism Bill to introduce a Community Right to Buy Assets of Community Value. It is interesting to see from this the main concerns surrounding the proposals on the part of the local authorities and community groups on the one hand and the businesses and land owners on the other. That said, what is perhaps most surprising is the fact that it was not the land owners, who we suspected would have a lot to say on this proposal, who were the greatest contributors to this consultation comprising only 3.5% of respondents. Is this simply because the proposals are not as concerning to the land owners as many had originally envisaged or could this perhaps indicate that land owners are not sufficiently aware of the proposals or their implications so as to want to engage in the consultation?
