Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016

Section 53 – Inclusion in New Register of applications for right to buy abandoned, neglected or detrimental land

233.Section 53 amends section 97F of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 to remove the requirement for there to be a Register of Community Interests in Abandoned, Neglected or Detrimental Land. It requires the Keeper to include applications for the community right to buy abandoned, neglected or detrimental land as part of the Register of Applications by Community Bodies to Buy Land: in effect, the two Registers are thus merged. The amendment also makes consequential amendments to section 97F of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 to reflect this change.
