South of Scotland Enterprise Act 2019

Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015

82.Paragraph 9(2) of schedule 2 adds South of Scotland Enterprise to the list of persons in section 13 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 (“the 2015 Act “) who have a duty to facilitate community planning and take reasonable steps to ensure that community planning partnerships (established under that Act) carry out their functions efficiently and effectively.

83.The community planning partnerships that South of Scotland Enterprise has duties in relation to are the partnerships that include the Scottish Borders Council and Dumfries and Galloway Council as South of Scotland Enterprise’s area of operation covers the areas of both of those local authorities (see section 20).

84.Paragraph 9(3) of schedule 2 adds South of Scotland Enterprise to the list of persons in schedule 1 of the 2015 Act. This makes South of Scotland Enterprise a community planning partner for the purposes of Part 2 of the 2015 Act. As mentioned, South of Scotland Enterprise’s area of operation covers the areas of the Scottish Borders Council and Dumfries and Galloway Council and so it will be a community planning partner to both of those local authorities.

85.Paragraph 9(4) of schedule 2 adds South of Scotland Enterprise to the list of persons in schedule 3 of the 2015 Act. This makes South of Scotland Enterprise a “relevant authority” for the purposes of Part 5 of the 2015 Act, which means that its assets may fall to be transferred under that Part to a community transfer body as defined in section 77 of that Act.
