Why We Are Consulting

Under Part 1 of the Land Reform (Scotland) 2016 Act, Scottish Ministers must prepare, consult upon and publish a Land Rights and Responsibilities Statement. This forms a key part of the Scottish Government’s commitment to end the ‘stop-start’ nature of land reform. This consultation is an opportunity to express your views on the content of the Land Rights and Responsibilities Statement.
