Common good property

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.

Before establishing a common good register, the Act requires us to publish a list of property that we propose to include in the register, and to consult on this list. We are in the process of compiling the list and will let you know when it is available for consultation on our Consultation Hub.
