Annual Report 2017-18
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:
It enables community transfer bodies to proceed at a pace that suits them
It provides different routes to asset transfer
It has a focus on dialogue and partnership
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.
