Community right to challenge

The Community Right to Challenge enables voluntary and community groups, parish councils, and employees of a local authority to submit expressions of interest to the council to take over the running of council services, either across the borough or in particular areas.

Where an expression of interest is accepted, you and the other bidders are invited to submit a tender for the specified services.

In order for an expression of interest to be accepted, it must include certain information. Everything we need can be found in our expression of interest application form.

Before submitting an expression of interest form, you should take a look at our commissioning calendar which specifies periods during which expressions of interest in different services will be considered.
