Consultation on the Right to Buy Land to Further Sustainable Development

Closes 19 Sep 2019

Opened 26 Jun 2019


A consultation on regulations to bring into force Part 5 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016, the right to buy land to further sustainable development.

Why We Are Consulting

It is important that those who may seek to use Part 5 to buy land, and those whose land may be sought under Part 5, have the opportunity to comment on how the Part 5 process will work in practice. In addition to asking about the detail of the regulations, the consultation contains an overview of how the Part 5 process will work. This is an opportunity for consultees to consider and comment on whether this matches their expectations of how the Part 5 legislation would work in practice.
