What do we want to know?

Part 8 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 aims to "increase transparency about Common Good assets and community involvement in decisions taken about their identification, use and disposal".

The Act places new duties on the council in relation to common good property:-

  • Section 102 of the Act places a duty on the council to establish and maintain, after consultation, a register of property which is held by it as part of the common good.
  • Section 104 imposes the requirement for public consultation before the disposal or change of use of a common good property.

Statutory guidance (https://www.gov.scot/publications/community-empowerment-common-good-property-guidance-local-authorities/) published by the Scottish Government sets out the procedure for establishing the register, and for subsequent consultations on the use or disposal of common good land.

We have published our draft Register and would like your comments on the register, for example, to suggest that a property should be removed or added.

Click for more detail Consultation on future policy development of Sexual Entertainment Venues in Glasgow Chief Executive Dept 31 May 2019 26 Aug 2019
What do we want to know?

Recently, the Scottish Government passed legislation giving Local Authorities a discretionary power to licence Sexual Entertainment Venues.                                               

The main changes introduced by the recent legislation are summarised below:

  • A discretionary power for Local Authorities to pass a resolution, if it so wishes, in relation to the licensing of SEVs in its area;
  • If a resolution is passed by the Local Authority:
    • it must determine the appropriate number of SEVs for their area and for each relevant locality;
    • it must prepare a SEV Policy Statement in respect of its functions in relation to the licensing of SEVs taking into account the licensing objectives of public nuisance, crime and disorder, public safety, protecting children and young people from harm and violence against women;
    • there are various grounds for the refusal of a SEV licence including that the number of SEVs in the Local Authority area or the relevant locality at the time the application is made is equal to or exceeds the number which the Local Authority consider is appropriate for that locality;
    • all SEVs would require a SEV licence to operate;
    • the resolution must not come into force any earlier than one year from the date the resolution is made by the Local Authority; and
    • a SEV  Policy Statement must be published by the Local Authority 28 days prior to the resolution coming into effect.
