Community ownership or control of land and buildings can make a major contribution towards strengthening communities and creating sustainable places to live. It provides a base for activities and services that might not otherwise be accessible to local residents, and can provide jobs, training and bring income to the local area. More widely, it can provide stability and sustainability for a community group, allowing them to develop new initiatives and support other developing groups and it can create a stronger sense of community identify, cohesion and involvement.
