SG's Report - 'Our Rural Future'
This report is the Government's response to the Speak Up for Rural Scotland consultation carried out, last year. It contains many themes that are similar to the recommendations contained in the report from the Forum's Upland Solutions project. A thought for the Moorland Forum is that we could offer a task force approach, building on our experience with Upland Solutions, for the development of plans for communities where there are upland or moorland interests. This would allow the Forum to work in partnership with other organisations to produce plans for the future of the community area that connected with upland interests.
The report can be downloaded from the SG Website and is well worth a look. For the Forum, the sections on Land Use Priorities and Community Participation Priorities are of particular relevance.
