This briefing provides an overview of the main provisions of the Decentralisation and Localism Bill 2010 that will affect the voluntary and community sector. The paper focuses on the relevant areas most likely to impact on members of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations and the voluntary and community sector, these are identified as: new powers to local authorities; assets of community value; and community right to challenge. The briefing welcomes the flexibility and control that the bill will bring to local areas, allowing them to respond best to the needs of communities. It states however, that good partnership working between sectors will be fundamental to this new power of competence being a success.
