Community Asset Transfer event

Between 2-4pm on the 24th March at the Leith Community Education Centre, Leith Creative will be hosting Matt Baker from the Stove.

For those who don’t know the Stove, they are an artist collective and community network who, amongst other things, are looking to buy back some of the local high street in the town for community use.

Matt has a wealth experience within the asset transfer process and can give an overview of the many forms of support that are available to communities, alongside sharing some personal insights as to how that happens on the ground.

Taking inspiration from some of the town hall debates happening nationally we are seeking to develop a new forum to address some of the pressing issues affect the area and are open to suggestions and recommendations for guests.

The event is free and open to all. Refreshments will be be available but feel free to bring a dish for pot luck snacks.

Community Rights to Buy: free event

(adapted from an email from the Scottish Government)

The Scottish Government Community Land Team is holding a free event at the Scottish Borders Campus, Galashiels on 2 April 2019. The event will give an overview of the various types of community rights to buy that communities can use, practical advice on how to become a compliant body and the application processes. If you are interested in coming along please follow this link to our Events and book your place. You will be able to sign up to attend a presentation, which will be held in the morning, and one to one sessions which are planned for the afternoon, for those who wish to discuss specific ideas or require more detailed guidance. This is on a first come first served basis.

If you require further guidance or have any queries please get in touch at crtb@gov.scot
