An economic assessment of assets in community ownership

Project Director: Ian Wilson
Project Duration: 2018-19

This study will:
  • Provide a mapping of the present picture of community asset ownership in England; including a detailed mapping in five Local Authorities.
  • Survey assets in community ownership to gain a national level assessment of their financial health, the benefits that they provide to local communities and the challenges that they have faced.
  • Undertake an in-depth economic assessment of the viability of a number of community assets.
  • Identify the types of governance, fiscal and delivery challenges which community owners have overcome to ensure the assets viability.
  • Draw conclusions for policy interventions.

The project team also includes Eliza Buckley and Mike Aiken (IVAR).
