SICK KIDS HOSPITAL SITE - COMMUNITY RIGHT TO BUY

During 2017, the Marchmont & Sciennes Development Trust (MSDT) campaigned to acquire the Sick Kids site in South Edinburgh under new Community Right to Buy legislation, a mechanism of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 and Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015. 

Although unsuccessful on the Sick Kids site at such short notice, MSDT is continuing to pursue bringing urban land under community ownership for the benefit of local people.
