Transferring public assets into community control

On the 1st  March between 10.30 and 14.30  the Development Trust Association Scotland (DTAS) will be run­ning a event on trans­fer­ring pub­lic assets into com­munity con­trol.

Greater con­trol of assets such as land, build­ings, or renew­able energy resources can help com­munit­ies become more resi­li­ent and sus­tain­able, increase loc­al use of the assets in ques­tion, safe­guard them for the future, and even gen­er­ate income to sup­port fur­ther loc­al ini­ti­at­ives. Many such assets are under the con­trol of loc­al or cent­ral Government. How can their trans­fer to well-gov­erned and account­able com­munity organ­isa­tions be encour­aged? This is the ques­tion that DTAS Promoting Asset Transfer pro­gramme asks.

This sem­in­ar will:

  • Reflect on some of the early find­ings from DTAS’ Promoting Asset Transfer pro­gramme
  • Provide learn­ing from the prac­tic­al exper­i­ence of those involved in asset trans­fer pro­jects
  • Consider future dir­ec­tion of the com­munity asset agenda in Scotland.

If you would like more inform­a­tion on the event or how to book your place, please see the Event Flier.
