Common Good is property owned by a local authority which has been passed down, through local government reorganisation, from former burghs. Those burghs would have received it as a gift or purchased it.
It includes land and buildings, and moveable items such as furniture and art. It may include cash where property has been sold and income received.
A register of Common Good assets has been compiled and details can be found on the following pages.
Guidance for local authorities on Community Empowerment and Common Good has been published by the Scottish Government.
