Common Good Register

The common good is a fund made up of money, land and buildings plus moveable items such as the provost chain and badge, various robes and official garments, paintings and artifacts.

We maintain a register of land and buildings owned by Common Good Funds.

The verification of common good assets is an ongoing process carried out in consultation with local community groups. Further common good assets will be added to the register as they are identified these will be added to the register.
