Hi Sam

Have managed to list a couple of places as community assets and as Sheila says it should buy you time. However all the provisions for asset transfer in the Localism act seemed to be being ignored by councils now. They are so squeezed by Tory cuts that they want to sell everything for the highest possible price regardless of the consequences in the future. However they DO also want to be re-elected … so getting loads of people involved in your campaign is for sure the best way to have some influence. Getting a Neighbourhood Plan accepted is a load of work and takes a long time … so probably not much point if council is already talking with developers. Really wish you the very best of luck … Wendy
