Building local ownership – Co-operative Party

Far too many high streets have empty, boarded up buildings that quickly become an eyesore. They may wait years, becoming increasingly dilapidated and vandalised, before eventually being bought by large companies who often have little interest in any long-term benefit to the community.

Local Ownership changes that, putting the people who live in the community in the driving seat.

Local ownership means communities coming together to buy at-risk pubs, shops and other community assets in order to revive or repurpose them in a way that benefits the community.

We're campaigning because we think it should be easier for communities to have a say in what happens to their high streets. Agree with us? Add your name and we'll keep you up to date.
