New website explains how to transfer assets
COMMUNITY groups and social enterprises who would like to own property that currently belongs to Argyll and Bute Council but is surplus to its requirement can access details via dedicated website pages.
The information on the community asset transfer process, available on the web, will be backed up by a community empowerment event at the Three Villages Hall in Arrochar on March 11.
Speakers from the Scottish Community Development Centre, the Community Ownership Support Service, Community Land Scotland and the Democratic Society will give presentations on aspects of community empowerment. Councillor Robin Currie, spokesperson for community and culture, said: ‘These new web pages are a fantastic resource for community groups who want to learn more about the new asset transfer process.
‘The pages provide advice, support and contact details for community groups looking to use the new asset transfer framework.
‘If you can’t find what you are looking for, contact our social enterprise team on 01700 501370 or email asset-transfer@ argyll-bute.gov.uk. ‘If you are interested in attending, please register at https://www.eventbrite. co.uk/e/argyll-and-bute- community- empowerment- event- tickets-31409463551.’
