The Scottish Land Fund Continues!

Following the success of the current Scottish Land Fund the Scottish Government has announced a new programme to be launched Spring 2016

The new fund will continue to:

  • Support communities to become more resilient and sustainable through the ownership and management of land, buildings and associated assets.
  • Be open to applications from organisations that are community-led, community-controlled, and defined by a geographic area.
  • Enable communities to successfully manage local land and land assets to meet local need and deliver benefit for the whole community
  • Help communities realise the opportunities created by the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003
  • Be delivered by a partnership between HIE and Big Lottery Fund with an SLF Adviser allocated to work with all applicants
  • Be overseen by an independent Committee who make capital funding decisions
