Expression of Interest - Community Right to Challenge
The Community Right to Challenge is part of the Localism Act 2011. It gives voluntary and community groups, parish councils and local authority employees the right to submit an Expression of Interest (‘EOI’) in taking over and running a local authority service. The council must consider and respond to the EOI. If the council accepts it, we must run a procurement exercise under normal procurement rules. For statutory guidance please see the Communities and Local Government website.
Before filling in an EOI, please read the guidance notes.
