Asset transfer update

The Scottish Government has uploaded a lot more information about asset transfer on its website. Asset transfer requests are an important aspect of the new Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act - potentially making it easier for community bodies to own, lease or use land and buildings controlled by public agencies.

The section contains:


  • a timetable for implementation

  • a series of discussion papers which set out what is provided in the Act and what needs to be decided in regulations and guidance

  • flowcharts to give an overview of how the process is expected to work.
