Speak Up for Scotland

The Analysis Report of the consultation, which generated 131 written responses, has now been published and can be accessed from the SG website.  It is available as the full report or in an abbreviated version.
Some highlights from a Forum perspective:

  • encouragement of rural partnerships in the context of land use
  • co-operation between local communities, land managers, planners and developers to identify appropriate sites and opportunities with potential for renewable energy development
  • planning and regulation: the need to reduce regulation and bureaucracy
  • respondents stressed the need for skilled and informed community organisations
  • the importance of evidence gathering and sharing good practice
  • a need for an action plan/strategic guidance from the Scottish Government relating to implementation
