Land Commission – Driving Land Reform
The Scottish Land Commission came into being six months ago and has spent much of that time out on the road engaging with its stakeholders around what is undoubtedly a contested area of public policy. Last week, the Commission held its first conference and published its 3 year strategic plan and the Land Rights and Responsibilities Statement – both key documents in shaping its future work. Any concerns that momentum behind the land reform agenda might ease up now that the Commission is in place were quickly dispelled by Cab Sec Roseanna Cunningham’s speech in which she promised much more was to come.
