Community Right to Buy – Scot Gov Impact Evaluation

The Scottish Government have yesterday (12.10.15) published a report evaluating the impact of community right to buy legislation over the last 10 years.

Dr. Aileen McLeod, Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform said

“The report identifies examples of successes by community groups purchasing land through Community Right to Buy and also identifies barriers that face community groups and what we can do to address this.

“This report will contribute to our on-going work on community ownership of land through the Community Empowerment legislation, as well as our proposals for communities to compulsory acquire land for their sustainable development through the Land Reform Bill.”
