Land reform hots up
It’s clear the future of land reform is going to be hotly contested for the remainder of this Parliament and beyond. Scottish Land and Estates, the landowners’ trade body, have already established a £50k fighting fund to protect their interests. A coalition of land reform campaigners, coordinated through new campaign group SLAM have plans to crowdfund at least an equivalent amount. Scottish Government’s consultation closes on 10th February. Anyone with an interest in any aspect of land reform is encouraged to respond. Andy Wightman has provided a comprehensive briefing.
