The Use of Coastal Land and the Seabed
As Head of Land Rights and Responsibilities at the Scottish Land Commission, Emma gave the attendees an overview into the role her organisation plays in putting into practice the Scottish Government’s Land Rights and Responsibilities Statement which informs people as to what the expectations of landowners are regarding responsible land management.
The Scottish Land Commission has also issued a range of protocols which provides practical details for landowners and communities as to what a responsible land ownership in practice entails.
Last year, they published recommendations on Regional Land Use Partnerships and how they might work. These partnerships are designed to bring people together, engage with communities and landowners to agree priorities for action in that area, and that these partnerships should be able to direct public funding to achieve those actions. The Scottish Government is now piloting these partnerships in five areas across Scotland. and that there we have a pilot of those projects in 2021.
