Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015

Register of Community Interests in Land

74.Section 39 of the Act amends section 36 of the 2003 Act. Section 36 of the 2003 Act provides that the Keeper of the Registers of Scotland is required to set up and maintain the Register of Community Interests in Land. Section 36 also provides what information is to be publicly available via the Register, and requires a community body which is a company limited by guarantee to have its name and address in the Register. Subsections (1) and (2) of section 39 of the Act amend this, so that a community body which is a Scottish charitable incorporated organisation or community benefit society is also required to have its name and address in the Register.

75.Section 39(3) of the Act inserts subsections (5A) and (5B) into section 36 of the 2003 Act. Subsections (5A) and (5B) require a community body to notify the Keeper of a change to the community body’s name or registered or principal office as soon as is reasonably practicable after the change has been made.
