The Localism Act is about handing power to communities - giving them the freedom and flexibility to achieve their own ambitions.

The Localism Act has five key measures which put new rights and powers in the hands of local people to take charge of their future.

The Government has set up five web pages/resources to help members of the public to find out more.

You can also get advice and find out more from the 'my community rights' website which has now been set up by DCLG, Locality and the Social Investment Bureau - see link below.
