Raising the profile of community landownership

Since 2021 we have been working to raise the profile of urban community landownership in the Clyde Valley, explaining how it is an option for any community, and creates local democratic oversight of landownership.

We have an active events schedule and social media accounts, and we hold wide-ranging meetings to raise the profile of community ownership and land reform. Our approach is focused on community group needs, and on building a network of highly capable community landowners. Check out our work, attend an event, and get in touch if you have any questions!

The number of enquiries about community ownership has steadily increased since we launched this project in 2021.  This demonstrates the continued interest in community ownership.  The level of interest, and particularly the level of interest in privately-owned land and negotiated sales, has remained significantly larger than expected. The majority of groups accessing the Community Ownership Hub are early-stage, pre-acquisition groups. This means that with our support groups are better informed when they are starting their journey through community ownership and deciding where to go next.
