Added at 15:17 on 04 February 2021

Article in the Forres Gazette: 

"THE Scottish Land Commission (SLC) has recommended that regional councils improve transparency of, and community involvement in, common good decision-making.

The latest SLC protocol sets out how local authorities should manage common good land and buildings in line with statutory duties, and sets out recommendations including: Providing information on whether common good assets are being used, leased or are vacant, and whether ownership can be transferred; providing dedicated points of contact for common good matters; engaging communities in decision-making around common good assets; considering whether alternative uses – or disposal – will deliver public good; making information about how common good funds are used available".
