What do you think about transferring council owned buildings like theatres to the community?

We are looking to transfer council owned buildings e.g. The Melville Theatre, Abergavenny & The Drill Hall in Chepstow to community ownership. This will enable communities to manage the assets directly to maintain local services in the face of budget cuts. We are interested in your thoughts & ideas.

Monmouthshire County Council is facing a big challenge to reduce costs.  From April 2016 we have to make savings of £6.3 million.  We are taking actions to make sure our internal operations are as cost-effective as possible, however many of the proposals will affect you more directly.  

CHIPChepstow - These could be great options but it seems as though this isn't a simple process? If it was easier to do then there might be more take up? Also there aren't many people who would do it for free it would need to benefit them?
