With the upcoming opportunity of a Community Asset Transfer of Russel Street Community Centre as well as in the coming years the possibility of other buildings both traditional and more unusual, we are organising a workshop to cover everything you need to know (but were afraid to ask) about taking on a building as a Community Asset Transfer (CAT).
A CAT is where a council owned building (or land) is returned to the council, is surplus to requirements, and could potentially be better run by the community/voluntary sector to the benefit of the community. The CAT bit is the transfer of the building/land to a third sector organisation
The objectives of the workshop are:
• To understand what the Norwich Community Asset Transfer process consists of
• To understand how best reflect the needs of the local area in how a building is used
• To feel prepared to submit an expression of interest and business plan for the process
• To plan how best to engage local residents with a new building use
The workshop will be at Russell Street Community Centre, 53 Russell Street, NR2 4QT on Friday 22nd November 2019. We are running the workshop twice: one at 12.30 – 15.00 and then again at 15:30 – 18:00.
If you or a member of your group or organisation would like to attend one of the workshops you can book yourself a free place.
