Director's Update

It has been a busy few days preparing the feedback report to the critique phase of the Muirburn Code review.  I have also drafted the report for SEPA as part of the commissioned work to "Evaluate measures and policy mechanisms to protect peatland".

Both these reports will be discussed at meetings in Dunblane on Thursday, 21 March, and the discussion will contribute to the development of the reports into a form that can be submitted.  Thanks to all who have contributed to drafting these reports and to those who are attending the meetings on Thursday.  There is plenty of work still to be done!

The funding of the Forum through the grant from SNH ends on 31 March and I have to prepare the final claim, this week.  Hopefully the Service Level Agreement approach that follows will be less bureaucratic.

I have circulated a 'save the day' note to members who will be invited to the next Chairman's Working Group meeting.  The date of this meeting has been changed to 10 May to match the Chairman's availability.

I am waiting for more details about the Research Exchange meeting that SRUC / JHI are organising in May, and we will circulate details as soon as we get them.
