(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council.)
It may well be worthwhile visiting Andy Wightman’s post on the subject: http://www.andywightman.com/common-good.
In accordance with Part 8 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 which relates to Common Good assets, Edinburgh Council is consulting on its proposed common good asset register.
The register and information on common good can be found on the Council website.
The Scottish Government has produced guidance with additional information.
You are welcome to consider the proposed common good register in conjunction with the criteria shown on the webpage which qualifies a property for common good status. If you have any comments or representations to make you can do this using the link on the webpage to the Council’s Consultation Hub
Please feel free to distribute this email to any persons or groups you feel may be interested in this process. The same information is being sent to Councillors, MP’s and MSP’s, Locality managers and to interest groups such as Edinburgh World Heritage and the Cockburn Association for example.
Thank you for your time in considering this consultation.
