We need the membership of the society to increase and for that membership to lobby local councillors and MSP’s and MP’s.
Scottish Government stated aims
“The transfer of assets to communities should not be driven by public sector cost saving exercises. The basis for asset transfers should be that communities are able to better utilise a public sector asset for their own purposes.”
“should not be driven by public sector cost saving exercises”,
balancing budgets by selling assets to the private sector developers certainly does not fit with this statement.
Why not become a member of the Granton Improvement Society at no Cost. You will then own part of a huge community asset. Just fill out form and either post to address on form or email to the address on form.
