First urban use of Act

| 0 comments

Edinburgh community group Action Porty in Portobello has become the first urban community in the country to successfully register interest in buying a community asset under the extension of the community right to buy to urban areas contained in the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act. If Action Porty can secure the necessary funding, it will purchase the former Old Parish Church in Bellfield Street. The government has agreed the project is of community benefit and given the campaigners’ first option on buying the buildings, provided they can pay the market value.
