The Findhorn Village Conservation Company
TFVCC (The Findhorn Village Conservation Company) is a community led and controlled company limited by guarantee with charitable status. We were set up in 2011 and our membership is open to anyone on the electoral roll living in the postcodes of Findhorn village.
Across Scotland, land is being bought by communities who wish to remove the uncertainty inherent in private ownership. Land ownership by the community will unlock tangible assets, but it is the intangible skill and determination of people that will see opportunities and accomplish projects - for Findhorn village we will need both.
With strong community backing we applied to the Scottish Land fund and have been successful in our bid to buy the residual Novar Estates land in Findhorn. Currently our solicitors are in the process of finalising the conveyancing, which will be completed by the end of March 2016.
"Good place-making can provide communities with an important cultural context; a sense of pride and belonging; and a sense of local and national identity. It can provide environments which function well; link well with surrounding settlements and provide attractive areas in which to socialise, to move around and to do business."
