Community ownership can have direct benefits for neighbourhoods and people by enabling local control of assets and the ability to respond first-hand to community needs.
Join Glasgow City Heritage Trust, the Community Ownership Support Service, and Community Land Scotland’s Community Ownership Hub to hear about the routes to ownership available to communities concerned about vacant and at-risk historic buildings. Learn about the ownership options, the difference between terms like Community Asset Transfer and Community Right to Buy, what factors to consider when thinking about community ownership, and how to work with the stakeholders involved.
Open to anyone interested in learning more about community activism and saving vacant, at-risk historic buildings.
The Community Ownership Support Service is a Scottish Government funded programme, set up to help community groups in Scotland take on assets for their community.
Community Land Scotland is the voice of Scotland’s community landowners. The new Community Ownership Hub: Glasgow and Clyde Valley is encouraging and enabling more community ownership in the region through increased support, action research, and promotion of land reform.
This event is part of GCHT’s Historic Built Investment Forum, a series of events focused on issues currently facing Glasgow’s built heritage and how the historic environment can act as a driver for sustainable development.
