Community right to buy; Abandoned, neglected and detrimental land

07 August 2018

10:30AM - 11:30AM

The community right to buy abandoned, neglected or detrimental land came into force on 27 June 2018.

It gives community groups a compulsory purchase right to buy land which is wholly or mainly, abandoned or neglected or the use or management of which is causing harm to the environmental
wellbeing of the community. 

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) is running a free webinar alongside Scottish Government's Community Land Team to explore this new Community Right to Buy, the process, and the do’s and
don’ts. The session will also explore how the Scottish Land Fund can provide support to communities seeking to use this legislation.

  • DAVE THOMSON, Head of Community Land Team, Scottish Government
