Evidence on Common Good Property and Funds

This is a mini blog [sign]post about a niche area of Scots property law.

Last year I offered a short blog post on “Common Good Property and Funds”, which the Local Government and Communities Committee of the Scottish Parliament was looking at. In that, I noted I was piggy-backing on the relevant submission of the Law Society of Scotland rather than making my own submission on the topic.

Towards the end of last year, I was asked to give oral evidence to the Local Government and Communities Committee on this topic. Grateful as I was to be asked, I felt it was best I leave this particular topic to others more experienced in this topic, and the record of evidence given by Craig Veitch (of Aberdeen City Council), Andrew Ferguson (of Fife Council and the Society of Local Authority Lawyers and Administrators in Scotland), Dr Lindsay Neil (former chair of Selkirk and district community council) and Paul Nevin (who appeared on behalf of Alasdair McEachan and has some experience through working at Moray Council) can be found here (PDF).

In the email inviting me to attend I was given the chance to offer some additional thoughts on the specific questions consulted on. This I duly did. My submission, along with the submission of others, is now indexed here and can be accessed here (PDF).
