Community Asset Transfer is the transfer of responsibility for an asset from the council to a community group or organisation.
Part 5 of The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 sets out the key rights and duties, and provides a framework for the Asset Transfer process.
Before you make a formal transfer request
Preparing a business case for a formal Asset Transfer Request can be a big task. To save you time and effort, we use a form to assess whether a potential formal request is likely to succeed.
- Read the Scottish Government guidelines
- Read the community asset transfer policy and guidance
- Complete the form to express an interest in Community Asset Transfer
To help identify assets that may be available through asset transfer, section 94 of Part 5 of the act requires each relevant authority to establish, maintain and make available a register of land which it owns or leases.
Asset request form
The statutory asset transfers request process only starts after a validation letter has been issued by us. We send out this letter to confirm that you have included all the required information with your request.
