The Community Right to Challenge will let communities challenge to take over local services that they think they can run differently and better.
The Community Right to Challenge came into effect on Wednesday 27th June 2012.
The Right to Challenge (which is part of the Localism Act) could be used to run a wide range of local council services.
Voluntary and community groups can submit an expression of interest to the council if they’d like to provide a local service themselves. If the challenge is accepted, the council will then enter into a procurement exercise for that particular service.
