The licensing scheme introduced by the Wildlife & Natural Environment (Scotland) Act 2011 is now live and the guidance and application form can be downloaded from the SNH website.
Other muirburn provisions introduced by the Act are likely to be implemented prior to the start of the Muirburn Season on 1 October. The Forum's muirburn group will be assisting the Scottish Government with the preparation of additional guidance about these issues - mainly changes to the season to remove the extension above 450m to 15 May, and changes to the neighbour notification requirements.
