Community Right to Buy
Over the past several years legislation and national policy in Scotland has developed to encourage and support the ownership of assets by communities.
The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 gave communities the right to buy land and buildings in certain circumstances and represented a fundamental change in the legal and policy context surrounding ownership and land management, giving the potential for greater powers to be transferred to communities.
