Dear Mr Smith

I have provided a list of Common Good land/properties in Forfar but this
is not exhaustive and I would advise that this information is not held in
the format required by statute.  I should explain that a full list of
properties which the council already considers to be common good is
currently being prepared in terms of the Community Empowerment (Scotland)
Act 2015 and its associated guidance (published in July 2018).  As you may
be aware, the council must include in that list all assets (including
properties) which it considers common good.  Once the list has been
compiled it is advertised for public consultation.  I am currently unable
to provide you with a definitive date when the list will be advertised,
however, the council maintains a register of those who wish to be
automatically notified once the list has been advertised.  Please contact
[1][email address] to be included in the list.

 

A report has been submitted to the council’s Policy and Resources
Committee for consideration at its next meeting on 9 October 2018 which
sets out further details:
[2]https://www.angus.gov.uk/sites/angus-cms...

 

In compiling responses to information requests we invariably use
information which is routinely published on the [3]Council’s website or
through its [4]Publication Scheme.  If you require further information
please first check that the information you want is not routinely
published as any such information is exempt from release in terms of
Section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 or Regulation
6(1)(b) of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004.

Please note that the information contained in this reply is believed to be
accurate as at today’s date (unless otherwise indicated) but no warranty
is given.  Further, Angus Council does not accept liability for any loss,
injury or damage which arises from the use of the information contained in
this reply either by you or by any other party.  Please refer to the
information set out in the Appendix which explains your right to complain
if you are unhappy with how the Council has dealt with your request.

If you have any other queries, please contact me using the details below.
