Community Land Scotland

Our members are leading a growing
movement for change in Scotland

Full or Aspiring membership with Community Land Scotland is open to geographic community groups who either already own or who aspire to own land for the benefit of the community.

Membership Categories

There are two membership categories that community groups can apply for:

Full members must have an open membership to people living in the geographic area and can own or be working towards owning land. There must be protections in your governing documents to ensure local control of your Board or Committee. Organisations must be formally constituted e.g. Company Limited by Guarantee, SCIO etc.

Aspiring members are non-constituted organisations that are working towards Full Membership criteria.  This membership will apply for 1 year and will be reviewed upon expiry of that period.  Aspiring Members shall not be entitled to vote.

If you are unsure which category you are in, please email:

What will you get from your membership with Community Land Scotland?

How to join

If your organisation would like to become a member of Community Land Scotland, please fill out our online Membership application. Alternatively, you can download and return a hard copy of the form.

We now have hope that the local community will be something more than a holiday home resort in 20 years.

When we've been able to take ownership of the first building, something started to happen. People have been getting really, really excited and that's wonderful to be a part of.

Work to make KPC warm, wind, water tight, accessible and more sustainable finally starts this week. It was only possible because we were able to bring the building into community ownership.
