Council asset register

Asset Register - land and property owned and leased by the council

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 Part 5 Section 94 details a duty to publish a register of land by 'relevant authorities'. North Lanarkshire Council qualifies as a 'relevant authority'.

The register includes, to our best knowledge and belief, a full list of assets that are directly owned and leased by us. There are exclusions to assets that require to be on the list and these are covered by The Community Empowerment (Registers of Land) (Scotland) Regulations 2016. Such assets include but are not limited to, adopted roads, canals and bus stations.

Our assets are identified utilising a Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) and only assets that have/had a direct operational purpose or use will have a UPRN and be listed on the register.

In the event that it is believed that we own an asset that is not listed and additional information is required, then we can be contacted. If the asset is not owned by us and additional information is sought on ownership then Registers of Scotland should be contacted rather than us.

Likewise, where an asset appears on the register and you wish to discuss the asset further then the council can be contacted. For enquires relating to Community Asset Transfer (CAT) please use the link opposite to visit the Community Asset Transfer and Participation Requests page for further information.

For other enquiries in relation to council ownership please email

Information and Guidance on the Asset Register

The Council Asset Register is available as an Excel Spreadsheet (a PDF version can be provided). The information is not intended to be fully conclusive but instead gives the ability to identify assets that might become the subject of a CAT request. We offer no warranties in terms of the accuracy of the information provided.

The Excel Worksheet contains drop-down menus that can be utilised to scrutinise the information. The user can search the various subcategories under each menu by ticking them on or off and pressing ok.

You may need to download or save the spreadsheet in order to use the drop-down menus.

For example, if you wish to locate a property in Ward 1:

  1. click the drop-down menu in the Ward box
  2. press select all which will untick all the Wards
  3. tick 1 and press ok.

If you wish to break down the search further within Ward 1 then another drop-down menu can be chosen and the same process followed as above.

For example in the event that the user is only interested in buildings - with Ward 1 still selected:

  1. press the drop-down menu in the Structure box;
  2. press select all to untick the categories; and
  3. then tick the type of property interested in such as single structure and press ok

From the search detailed the user will now have a list of single structures in Ward 1.

The drop-down menus that can be searched include:

  • Current use - brief description of asset type.
  • Service - The service within the council that holds the asset.
  • Title - The legal basis on which the council holds the asset.
  • Structure - details if the information relates to a structure (building).
  • Ward - The council ward where the asset is located.
  • Area Group - This has been used to describe historical housing areas rather than a specific town for example the Airdrie designation covers various additional conurbations such as Plains or Calderbank. The user should check the address column for a detailed property address.

Should you have any difficulty accessing the Council Asset Register spreadsheet or have any questions, please email for assistance.
