Draft Common Good Land Register

Closes 23 Apr 2023

Opened 20 Jan 2023

Overview

Under the terms of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, every Local Authority in Scotland is duty bound to prepare and publish a comprehensive register of all Common Good assets within their ownership.

Common Good Common good assets are the heritable (land and buildings) and moveable (paintings, furniture, etc.) property that belonged to the former Burghs of Scotland. Common Good assets are owned by the local authority, although administered separately from other local authority funds for accounting purposes.

More detailed guidance (opens in new tab) has been made available by the Scottish Land Commission, as to what constitutes Common Good.

 

Why your views matter

Prior to the production of the final Common Good register, Perth and Kinross Council are required under Section 102(2) of the 2015 Act, to release a provisional list of all Common Good assets which it holds.

You can take a look at a draft map of our assets here (opens in new tab) or take a look at our draft register here (opens in new tab)  or in the window below.
