Community Asset Transfer involves the transfer of responsibility for an asset from the Council to a voluntary or community organisation.
The part of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 which covers Community Asset Transfer enables community bodies to make requests for any land or buildings they feel they could make better use of. Community bodies can request ownership, lease or other rights as they wish.
The Council is required to assess each request transparently against a specified list of criteria and agree to the request unless there are reasonable grounds for refusal.
Community bodies are asked to discuss their ideas with the Council at an early stage. An Expression of Interest Form is available.
Once community bodies are ready they can apply for a Community Asset transfer by completing the full application.
On receipt of a valid application the Council will aim to make a decision within 6 months. Detailed information about each request will be published on our Notice of Requests and Representations page under the requirements of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 legislation.
