Success for Ulva
Commenting on the decision to give consent to North West Mull Community Woodland Company Limited to proceed with its right to buy the Isle of Ulva, under the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003, Cabinet Secretary for Land Reform Roseanna Cunningham said:
“Congratulations to the North West Mull Community Woodland Company in receiving consent to proceed with the purchase of the Isle of Ulva, under Community Right to Buy legislation.
“This means the community now have the opportunity to buy the island. If the community concludes the purchase, they will join previous successful community buy-outs across rural and urban Scotland.
“The community right to buy, which we expanded through the Community Empowerment Act in 2015, is unlocking potential in communities throughout our country, giving local people a say in their future.
“The Scottish Government will continue to promote community land ownership and work to ensure that land in Scotland delivers benefits for everyone.”
