Asset transfer update
December 7, 2015
The Scottish Government has uploaded a lot more information about asset transfer on its website. Asset transfer requests are an important aspect of the new Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act - potentially making it easier for community bodies to own, lease or use land and buildings controlled by public agencies.
The section contains:
- a timetable for implementation
- a series of discussion papers which set out what is provided in the Act and what needs to be decided in regulations and guidance
- flowcharts to give an overview of how the process is expected to work.
