Common Good Asset Register

Closed 31 May 2024

Opened 29 Feb 2024


Part 8 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 aims to "increase transparency about Common Good assets and community involvement in decisions taken about their identification, use and disposal".

The Act places new duties on the council in relation to Common Good property:

  • S.102 - places a duty on the council to establish and maintain, after consultation, a register of property which is held by it as part of the Common Good.
  • S.104 - imposes the requirement for public consultation before the disposal or change of use of a common good property.

Statutory guidance published by the Scottish Government sets out the procedure for establishing the register, and for subsequent consultations on the use of disposal of common good land.

We have published our draft register which can be found within the related documents section below.

The register may change over time, where further research identifies other property we consider to be common good, or if property is determined by a court to be common good. We may remove property from the list if it is no longer considered to be common good.

If you want to comment on the register then we would ask that you complete the short survey below.

This consultation runs until the 31st May 2024.
