Allotments guidance for local authorities: consultation

Consultation on draft statutory guidance for local authorities relating to certain sections of Part 9 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 - Allotments.


The Scottish Government's Programme for Government focuses on the themes of an education system providing opportunities for all, an economy with more jobs and fair work, public services fit for the future, empowering people and communities through strengthened local democracy and safeguarding Scotland's place in the world.

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 [1] ("the Act") was brought forward with the aim of empowering our communities by boosting the rights of community bodies and placing new duties and functions on public sector authorities.

The implementation of the Act will help empower communities across Scotland and will increase access to land for food growing purposes, be that on allotments or any other Grow-Your-Own initiatives.
