Dundee workshop on Community Empowerment Act

January 13, 2017

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act is about to come into force. The final stages of its development are almost complete with statutory guidance drafted and regulations going through Scottish Parliament Committees. It's looking like the different parts of the Act will be implemented over the coming months.

This free workshop for community organisations is a chance to find out what the Act contains and how to make use of it in order to do the sorts of things you want to do as a community. The main focus will be on how community organisations can use participation requests to start a dialogue with public bodies about things that matter to them. The workshop will also introduce you to

  • New opportunities to be part of community planning processes in your local area.
  • Provisions around asset ownership and community right to buy land and buildings
  • Other parts of the Act such as changes to National Outcomes and duties for local authorities around community food growing. 

The workshop will take place on Thursday the 9h February 2017, 1:30pm-4:30pm at CGate, Dundee Carers Centre, Seagate House, 132-134 Seagate, Dundee, DD1 2HB
