Community Asset Transfer

Community Asset Transfers is an option for community groups to request ownership, leasing or access rights for Council owned property as well property owned by other public bodies.

Community Asset Transfers was introduced in the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 (Part 5). Read our icon Introduction to Community Asset Transfer [133Kb] for a helpful guide of the process.

Making a request

View a list of icon PKC owned sites [431Kb]- this list of assets is currently being reviewed and may not be completely accurate.

If your community group is interested in exploring an asset transfer for a Council property, please fill out an icon Expression of Interest Form [1Mb], we advise you contact the Council prior to filling out the form for support and advice.

Upon submitting an expression of interest form the Council will gather and share relevant information to help your group consider their options.

If your group still wish to precede with the asset transfer your group will need to prepare a robust business plan for the property and submit a Stage 2 request form. The Council will consider all requests for asset transfer on the potential benefits for your community.

Read the Councils icon Community Asset Transfer Policy [669Kb] for more information on the process.

The Community Asset Transfer case library has all the documentation for transfer request that have reached stage 2.
