Land Use Strategy 2016 - 2021

Getting the best from our land: A Land Use Strategy for Scotland 2016 – 2021 is published today and is available on the Scottish Government website

‘Getting the best from our land’ is Scotland’s second land use strategy and comes at a time when focus on the way we use land is stronger than ever. The recently passed Land Reform (Scotland) Bill and Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act have paved the way for this revised strategy, which sets out the importance of: 
  • Management of natural resources with an ecosystems approach to land use
  • Partnership activity to bring a range of interests together to consider land use at a local level in both rural and urban areas
  • Developing and implementing activities to promote climate friendly farming and crofting
  • The relationship between ownership, use and management of land
  • Continuing to explore the potential of catchment based approaches for managing land
A full press release is available and any questions relating to the Land Use Strategy should be directed to the Land Use and Biodiversity Team - e-mail: landusestrategy@gov.scot
