The Scottish Land Commission has produced funding options for vacant and derelict land - a resource for community groups and others who might wish to bring new life to vacant and derelict land.

The resource provides a brief description of different funding sources available, highlighting the main limitations of each and indicating what type of activity the funding is most suitable for. Individual funding options are not mutually exclusive, and a mix of sources is often used by groups for financing projects. The circumstances of the community involved and the development opportunity it is seeking to finance will influence which source – or combination of sources – are used.
