Community land ownership

The Official Statistics publication ‘Estimate of Community Owned Land in Scotland 2017’ was published recently. It highlighted that as at June 2017 there were 562,230 acres in community ownership, which is 2.9% of the total land area of Scotland.

The document also includes breakdowns of community owned land by local authority and Scottish Parliamentary constituency; year of purchase/transfer; number of community groups and total amount of land transferred.

The publication also sets out how the Scottish Government plans on improving these statistics in the coming years, including data collection from the groups themselves to produce a geo-coded open data publication on community owned land by 2020.
