Community Asset Transfer
Leanchoil Trust submitted the asset transfer request (ATR) for the sale of the Leanchoil site on 16 December 2021 under Part 5 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015.
This starts a process with set timelines:
- NHS Grampian will issue an acknowledgement letter on receipt of all ATR documentation and will then have 6 months to issue a decision notice indicating their willingness to proceed
- Leanchoil Trust have a further 6 months to submit a formal offer for the site
- A further 6 months is allowed for completion of contracts
Hopefully this process will be completed by mid-2023, although it could happen sooner. Following 2 years of renovation we hope to open the doors to the Leanchoil Centre in 2025.
