Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Derek Mackay Thank you, Presiding Officer—that is something of a challenge when one has to remain neutral, as is the case with these matters, but I will do my best.

The debate has been consensual and constructive, and it has focused on a number of areas. First and foremost, we must consider the pupils...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Minister for Local Government and Planning (Derek Mackay) I acknowledge the work of the City of Edinburgh Council (Portobello Park) Bill Committee in considering the bill and the efforts of those who made written submissions or gave oral evidence.

As I said when I spoke in the preliminary stage debate on the bill in January, the Scottish Governm...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Derek Mackay Yes, the Scottish Government can consider that proposal. Arran is an excellent example of a place where communities and stakeholders come together to promote that which is best about the area. We look forward to seeing those proposals. Like every other island in Scotland, Arran will benefit from the...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Minister for Local Government and Planning (Derek Mackay) I have visited Arran and Cumbrae to discuss the measures that are set out in “Empowering Scotland’s Island Communities”, nearly all of which will apply to each of Scotland’s 93 inhabited islands. Proposals to benefit Arran and Cumbrae include revenue from the sea bed, an islands provision in the int...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Derek Mackay This has been a good debate in taking the bill to its satisfactory conclusion. I commend Dave Stewart for taking the bill forward in the way that he has. I believe that his stock in the Parliament is now even higher, across the chamber. He has helped make the connections to make it possible for the ...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Derek Mackay Amendments 7 and 8, which comprise the last group, result from an amendment to the bill at stage 2.

New sections 46F and 46G of the 2003 act were added at stage 2 and make the new owner and former owner severally liable for the local authority’s expenses when the building changes ownershi...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Derek Mackay This group of amendments concern the appeal and registration of a charging order.

The bill adds charging orders to the list of matters that are appealable under section 47 of the Building (Scotland) Act 2003. Where a local authority makes a charging order, the owner has 21 days to appeal,...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Derek Mackay Amendments 4, 9 and 10 can be considered to be minor technical or drafting amendments.

The bill provides that, where a charging order has been registered, the local authority must register the discharge of the order as soon as reasonably practicable after the charging order has been disch...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
The Minister for Local Government and Planning (Derek Mackay) I will outline the rationale behind amendments 1, 2, 3 and 5.
