Urban communities have been able to access the Scottish Land Fund and use Community Right to Buy legislation since 2016. Rural community landownership is now relatively well-established in Scotland with many good case studies and a support and funding infrastructure. Urban community landownership is still an emerging model but we are beginning to see a new wave of communities buying land in Scotland’s towns and cities. This role provides an exciting opportunity to support and learn from an emerging wave of urban community landowners; be involved in the implementation of new legislation and influence the support environment.
