Common good law has come to prominence in recent years as Scottish councils increasingly seek to raise revenue by promoting development of council-owned land. As several local authorities have found to their cost, proposals involving common good land and assets, particularly in regard to disposal, often bring them into conflict with local communities.

This is the only book to deal with this neglected area of property law. It covers:

  • historical background
  • administration of common good fund
  • classification of common good property
  • disposals of common good property
  • taking cases to court

Common Good Law provides local authority practitioners, those acting for purchasers of local authority property, and advisers to community councils with a clear and practical guide to the law.
