Episode 120 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Craig talks to John Hutchison about his involvement with community land buyouts on Eigg, Rum and Knoydart. They discuss how conditions prior to the buyouts stymied development in the communities and how this has changed since. They also discuss the barriers raised against community land buyouts, how a potential Scottish Constitution could grant and protect additional rights such as the Right to Buy and why community ownership isn’t just for rural areas.

Community Land Scotland’s website is here.

Constitution for Scotland can be found here.
