Community Asset Transfer

Community Asset Transfer (CAT) allows organisations to request ownership, lease of, or access rights to, Council or other publicly owned property.

“Community Asset Transfer (CAT) is a process that allows a community organisation to take over publicly-owned land or buildings in a way that recognises the public benefits that the transfer will bring. The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act has defined a legal process for asset transfer, which gives new rights to communities and places duties on public bodies. 

CAT can be achieved in a number of different ways at the request of the community – the transfer of title for outright ownership, the use of a long-term lease or indeed management agreements.” COSS

We can help guide your organisation through the process of arranging a Community Asset Transfer. 

Details of the process for Perth & Kinross Council asset transfers can be found here or you can watch a short a video which explains CAT.   

Extensive support and a wide range of resources is available for you through the DTAS Community Ownership Support Service
