Localism Act

The Localism Act 2011 (the Act) received Royal Assent on 16 November 2011. The aim of the Act is to:

  • give local communities more control over local decisions such as housing and neighbourhood planning
It also introduces "community rights", such as the right for community groups to bid to run local services, and bid to take over local assets.
