Privacy notices - Community Asset Transfer Asset Transfer Request
PurposeAn Asset Transfer Request is the formal document in which a Community Transfer Body applies to take-over management or ownership of a Highland Council Asset.
In January 2017, the Community Empowerment Act extended communities' powers to participate in the delivery of services and take over management and ownership of Assets. The process through which communities can take-over Assets is described as Community Asset Transfer. Submitting a full Asset Transfer Request allows the Highland Council to assess a Community Transfer Body's application. The information provided in the Asset Transfer Request will determine the Council's decision on whether to transfer an asset.
