A Right to Grow

We  believe that Scottish Parliament should legislate as part of the Community Empowerment and Renewal Bill  in favour of A RIGHT TO GROW FOR COMMUNITY GROUPS  as follows: 

Underused Public land and assets in public ownership of Local authorities, public agencies (such as Forestry Commission, Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish Government, Crown Estates) should be available for the use of local communities as a right. There should be a presumption in favour of community use of unused public land, unless the owner can show good reason why not, in a timely manner. 

Please sign this by 25th Sept - so we can submit this by deadline of 26th Sept. thanks - please also add comments and your name, and organisation if applicable.
