Part 3A of Land Reform Act Abandoned, Neglected or Detrimental land
The Land Reform Act changes includes secondary legislation proposals relating to Part 3A of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003. This is the community right to buy abandoned, neglected or detrimental land as introduced by the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 for community groups. The measures force the sale of land deemed to be abandoned, neglected or detrimental to the environment provided there are clear benefits to the community on acquisition.
This part of the act is currently being developed and the responses to a recent consultation have been collated. It is anticipated that this provision will be live by the end of 2017.
