What The Right To Buy Is Not
- It is not intended to be used as a means to block or blight developments on land (e.g. "NIMBY"). Concerns about developments should be addressed through the appropriate channels.
- It is not intended to be used to stop a landowner from developing their land if the community disagree with their plans. These concerns should be addressed through the appropriate channels.
- It is not intended to be used as a means to prevent or block other interested parties from purchasing land.
- An application is not meant to preserve the status quo. The application needs to show that it will further sustainable development in relation to the land.
To be aware:
Where an application to acquire land appears to demonstrate any of the points noted above, Scottish Ministers may not approve the application.
There is a problem
