Since the first edition of Common Good Law was published, there have been several key developments. Most notably, the Portobello Park case has led to a change in the law relating to appropriations of common good property. The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 has recently imposed new requirements on local authorities to publish a common good register and consult on any proposed disposals or changes of use of such property. This webinar will cover these developments and others, whilst giving an overview of where the law stands now.

Join Andrew Ferguson, author of Common Good Law and solicitor, Fife Council to gain insight on:

  • Update on recent case law, including Capacity Building Project and East Renfrewshire;
  • What the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016 changes mean for councils seeking to use common good land differently;
  • The inherent issues in creating common good register, and what a successful consultation might look like;
  • How to carry out a straightforward disposal of common good property in the light of the 2015 Act changes.

Who should watch?
This webinar will be of particular interest to property and litigation lawyers from both the public and private sector advising local authorities on common good matters. A degree of specialist knowledge is required in relation to local authority property matters; however, Andrew will give a brief introduction to the subject area for those new to it.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Greater insight into the current law on disposal and appropriation of common good property;
  • Understanding of the requirements of the 2015 Act as regards creation of a common good register;
  • Understanding of the new requirements relating to consultation in the context of the 2015 Act provisions;
  • Insight into what issues remain to be clarified going forward on common good law.
