Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015

Community transfer body

322.Section 77 defines a “community transfer body”. This is either a community-controlled body, as defined in section 19, or a body designated as a community transfer body by the Scottish Ministers by order. The Scottish Ministers may designate individual bodies to be community transfer bodies or may designate a whole class of bodies, so that any body of that type will qualify as a community transfer body. Subsection (3) states that where a trust is designated, the designated body will be the trustees, since a trust is not incorporated.
