Your view on participation requests and asset transfer

September 30, 2020

Scottish Parliament logoThe Scottish Parliament Local Government and Communities Committee would like to hear directly from community groups about their views on participation requests and asset transfer requests.

The committee is doing some work on the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 to explore what impact it has had on improving community wellbeing. As part of this, it is specifically looking at how well parts 3 and 5 of the Act, participation requests and asset transfers, are working in practice.

The Committee would like to hear directly from community bodies about their views and experiences of submitting participation requests or engaging with asset transfer requests with their local authority, or other public bodies. If you have not experienced this type of engagement and you are part of a community organisation which has views on how services or assets could be better run in your area, then we would also be keen to hear your views.

The Committee has prepared a survey to allow you to submit your views.

The survey closes on 23 October and should take no more than half an hour to complete. If you would like your response to be anonymous, you will have the opportunity to indicate this.

If you have any questions about the survey, and how your response will be used, please contact either Greig Liddell (Scottish Parliament Information Centre) or Jason Nairn (Assistant Clerk to the Local Government and Communities Committee). More information on how the information from this questionnaire will be used, please see the Parliament's Privacy Notice.
