You’ve got the power Jon Yates (jon. [email protected] gsi. gov. uk; 0303 444 3720) Department for Communities and Local Government May 2014 1
What do we want to achieve? • Communities genuinely more in control of decisions, assets and services • Build different relationships between people and services – with interaction, engagement and ownership accepted as the norm • People to have an understanding of what they can do, what their role is and how they can make a difference
We’re helping communities to take control… What’s the problem? What’s the solution? Want a much stronger say over what goes where in your community? Want your neighbourhood to grow while staying special? Neighbourhood Planning Community Right to Build Community Infrastructure Levy Local assets such as pub, shop or community centre closing?

Neighbourhood Planning The Upper Eden Community Plan brings together 16 parishes around the town of Kirkby Stephen, Yorkshire, and sets out what local people value about their community, and where they’d like to see change.
Right to Bid Residents of Nunhead, south London, came together to stop the clock on the sale of their local pub, The Ivy House, and raised money to buy it using community shares.

That’s all very well but this seems complicated… That’s why we’re: • Funding expert support organisations to work with community groups, parish councils and local authorities. An enquiry service, advice, case studies (and more) can be found at www. mycommunityrights. org. uk • Providing £ 51 m of grant support for communities using the new powers and opportunities • Working closely with other government departments to make it easier for communities to understand the wider help available 12
What’s the catch? Encouraging use of the new powers and opportunities. There isn’t one - the new powers and opportunities, if used well, can radically improve where you live.
