Rural Law

The Scottish Land Commission (SLC) is currently running a call for evidence on experiences of concentrated landownership in Scotland. The deadline for submissions is 30 June 2018. 

The SLC has made clear that it is looking for responses from people with “personal experience” of issues associated with concentrated land ownership. Sally Reynolds, a Commissioner at the SLC, commented that they wish to hear from people from “all perspectives” and to understand “both the good and bad experiences.

The SLC’s Chief Executive, Hamish Trench, has confirmed that over 300 responses have been received already.

If you want your views to be considered, you only have a few weeks left to get them in via the online survey. You can, if you wish, ask that your submission is not published.
