This is a useful summary publication concerning asset transfers, aimed primarily at local authorities and community organisations. It has been produced in conjunction with English Heritage, the Asset Transfer Unit, the Architectural Heritage Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund, the National Trust, and The Prince’s Regeneration Trust.

It covers practical areas such as strategising, options assessment, project support, risk assessment, raising finance, and maintaining long-term viability. It will help community groups to understand the responsibilities of taking over the management of a heritage asset, and will be of value also to central government and other public bodies where the transfer of a heritage asset is involved.
