Actions and Detail Panel
Getting in on the Act
Mon 24 April 2017, 13:00 – 16:00 BST
The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act is starting to come into effect, with most of the regulations and guidance now finalised.
This free workshop for community organisations is a chance to find out what the Act contains and how to make use of it in order to do the sorts of things you want to do as a community. The main focus will be on how community organisations can use 'participation requests' to start a dialogue with public bodies about things that matter to them. The workshop will also introduce you to:
- New opportunities to be part of community planning processes in your local area.
- Provisions around asset transfer and community right to buy
- Other parts of the Act such as changes to National Outcomes and duties for local authorities around community food growing.
