Falkirk workshops on Community Empowerment Act

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act is about to come into force. The final stages of its development are almost complete with statutory guidance drafted and regulations going through Scottish Parliament Committees. It's looking like the different parts of the Act will be implemented over the coming months.

These free workshops for community organisations are a chance to find out what the Act contains and how to make use of it in order to do the sorts of things you want to do as a community. The main focus will be on how community organisations can use participation requests to start a dialogue with public bodies about things that matter to them. The workshop will also introduce you to

  • New opportunities to be part of community planning processes in your local area.
  • Provisions around asset ownership and community right to buy land and buildings
  • Other parts of the Act such as changes to National Outcomes and duties for local authorities around community food growing. 

The workshops will take place on Thursday 23rd March, 10am - 12:30pm and 1:30pm - 4pm at the CVS Falkirk offices, Unit 6, Callendar Business Park, Falkirk, FK1 1XR. Attendees can book a place at either workshop.
