From news.gov.scot yesterday:
‘Plans to reform the Scottish Crown Estate, and give local communities more control of its assets, has been introduced to the Scottish Parliament. The Scottish Crown Estate Bill will establish a framework for changes in the management of Scottish Crown Estate assets and give communities a stronger voice in how these assets are managed. This will include opportunities for councils and communities to directly manage Scottish Crown Estate assets. The total capital value of the Scottish Crown Estate assets is £275.7m and the approximate gross annual revenue is £15m.’
As I understand it, the Scotland Act of 2016 led to the transfer of the management of Crown Estate assets and their revenues to Crown Estate Scotland in April 2017.
I take this to mean the revenue is part of the Scottish Government’s tax revenue as King Wiliam IV (above) ‘revoked the income from the Crown estates in Scotland in 1830.’
I’m out of my comfort zone here so I’d welcome comment from more-informed readers.
