Community Land Scotland

Community Ownership Electric Roadshow

From 26 – 29 February 2024, we hosted a series of information sessions across the Northeast of Scotland and Tayside to share inspiring stories of community ownership. In partnership with the Scottish Land Fund, we hosted events in Kirriemuir, Stirling, Dundee and Aberdeeen. On 19 March, we hosted a further event in Cumbernauld.

The page holds a variety of resources for attendees of those events, including the slide presentations from Community Land Scotland and the Scottish Land Fund, and the presentations of our guests who gave the stories of their own community land journeys.

In addition to presentations from the events, we are using this page to compile a list of resources that were requested during the Q&A sessions each night.
