There is also a community empowerment event on Saturday 11th March at the Three Villages Hall in Arrochar, hosted by Argyll and Bute’s Community Planning Partnership. The event will see speakers from the Scottish Community Development Centre, the Community Ownership Support Service, Community Land Scotland and the Democratic Society giving presentations on aspects of community empowerment.

Councillor Robin Currie, Policy Lead for Community and Culture, said: “These new web pages are a fantastic resource for community groups who want to learn more about the new asset transfer process.

“The pages provide advice, support and key contact details for community groups looking to use the new asset transfer framework created by the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act. They are still being added to – if you can’t find what you are looking for please don’t hesitate to contact our Social Enterprise Team on 01700 501370 or email
