Enterprising Communities Symposium
In conjunction with East Ayrshire Council, this symposium will give delegates the opportunity to identify best practice in asset transfer, discuss some of the challenges and explore ways to overcome these. With inspiring community led workshops demonstrating just how enterprising communities have been able to use asset ownership to protect key local services, create jobs and opportunities and transform their communities, this symposium is a must attend for those considering developing and implementing asset transfer policies.
