Mapping those assets

With the latest announcement from the Scottish Land Fund that four more communities have received funds to help them acquire important local assets, it occurred to me to ask Scottish Land Fund how many other communities have taken ownership of land and assets over the years. And given that the Scottish Land Fund isn’t the only route open to communities interested in acquiring assets, it raises a further question as to whether anyone has ever tried to map all community ownership of land and buildings on a national level. Apparently no one has. A research project for someone?
