Annual Report 2018-19
Section 95 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 requires each relevant authority to publish an asset transfer report for each year, setting out the number of requests that have been made and the number of requests, appeals and decisions that have resulted in different outcomes during that year. The annual report for Glasgow City Council is available below.
Glasgow City Council's approach to community asset transfer under the Act builds on existing policy and practice and has the following key features:
Community Transfer Bodies (CTBs) are encouraged to discuss their interest at an early stage with the Council to establish the most appropriate route to progress their interest. This could involve CTBs using the existing arrangements (e.g. license to occupy, short and long term lease) or arrangements under the Act for transferring an asset.
During 2018-19 the approach has evolved with an increase in dialogue with CTBs particularly around Validated Requests and potential Heads of Terms related to asset transfer.
