Handbook on developing local facilities

The CADISPA Trust, which specialises in support for remote rural areas, has produced a Handbook for communities wishing to develop a local facility.

A recent Scottish government survey showed that 80% of the 861 rural community facilities identified are community owned and two thirds are in need of major improvements to make them fit for purpose, failing which they are not sustainable. Local authorities are also trying to get local communities to take over other community buildings. Voluntary committees find it hard to design, fund and build these improvements. This guide has been written to provide guidance over the whole process.
