Late common good report delays Petitions Committee

The consideration of a public petition calling for new legislation to protect common good assets (PE 1050) has been postponed for 4 months to allow the Scottish Government to consider Audit Scotland’s report on the progress of Scotland’s 32 local authorities in compiling comprehensive common good asset registers.

See: http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/s3/committees/petitions/or-10/pu10-0302.htm#Col2376

The PPC has also raised the question as to whether or not the Scottish Government is satisfied with the progress of the local authorities and “are common good sites as protected as they can be.” See

It goes without saying that unless a local authority has a comprehensive list of common good assets any survey of the efficacy of their procedures to protect same is meaningless.

Yours in the common good.

Tom Minogue.
