Consent granted for first urban right to buy

A community group in Edinburgh is set to become the first organisation in an urban area to benefit from community right to buy powers. Scottish Ministers have given consent to Action Porty to proceed with the community right to buy of the former Portobello Old Parish Church and halls with a view to transforming it into a multi-use community hub.

The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 gives communities the right to buy assets under certain conditions. The powers have been used widely across rural Scotland but this is the first time permission has been granted to a group within a city to proceed with a purchase.
