Introduction

The Scottish Government published its Consultation on the Right to Buy Land to Further Sustainable Development on 26 June 2019 and it closed on 19 September 2019.

This was a technical consultation, consulting on the necessary regulations to bring into force Part 5 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016, the right to buy land to further sustainable development.

There were 29 questions in the consultation (the number of questions go up to 28, but question 5 has a 5A and 5B).

20 consultees submitted responses, 16 of these were from organisations and 4 from individuals. Not every respondent responded to every question, and the numbers and percentages who responded to each question, along with the numbers and percentage of those who agreed, disagreed or partially agreed with each question, are shown for each question.

One respondee chose not to have their response published, and names of individuals have been withheld where requested.

Most respondents commented on the technical aspect of the regulations, though one respondent used their response to object to community right to buy on principle.

Given the number of questions and the length of this analysis, the Scottish Government has chosen not to explain the issue behind each of the questions. Instead the reader is referred to the consultation itself, where a full explanation of the issues behind each question has been given.
