Localism suggests decision making and the running of services is best done at a local level.

Localism in practice can mean many different things from parish and town councils taking on new roles or extra responsibilities, local groups running services to individuals volunteering to help others in their community.

This aims to keep valued land and buildings in community use by giving local people the chance to bid or buy if and when they come onto the market.
Communities are able to bid to take over local services they think they can run differently and better.
