Helping communities manage land and property

We are currently developing a new pilot scheme that will improve our understanding of how local authorities, development trusts and other bodies can manage assets in their local area.

Our three-year corporate plan sets out our commitment to test different methods of managing assets, empowering communities and giving local people more say in decisions that impact the land, coastline and sea near where they live.

We appointed Argyll-based Sarah Brown of C2W Consulting to support us by providing advice, defining criteria for selecting pilots and ensuring the scheme is informed by consultation and engagement.

Sarah has established a set of draft criteria and clear process and we are now seeking views from tenants, community organisations, local authorities and others. Our aim is to launch a scheme that is inclusive, robust and transparent, in summer 2018.
