Common Good

As one of 3 Common Good Petitioners SOOT campaigner Sally Richardson has been giving evidence to the Scottish Parliament`s Local Government and Transport Committee. The final meeting of the current Local Government and Transport Committe was on Tuesday 27th of March at The Scottish Parliament.

The Committee at its meeting of 27 March considered the Deputy Minister`s response and confirmed its view that EVERY local authority in Scotland should have a PUBLICLY available COMMON GOOD ASSET LIST and that there should be a clear statement that common good assets can only be used for certain functions.

It was agreed that the committees work on the issue on the issue should be drawn to the attention of whichever successor committee has responsiblity for local government in session 3 so it can decide whether to monitor the Executive`s dealing with the issue or carry out further work on the subject.
