Land Reform Review

The Land Reform Review Group is an independent review group.  It was set up by the Scottish Government to develop innovative and radical proposals that will contribute to Scotland’s future success. 

Croft Housing - ScalpayThe relationship between the land and the people of Scotland is fundamental to the wellbeing, economic success, environmental sustainability and social justice of the country.

The structure of land ownership is a defining factor in that relationship: it can facilitate and promote development, but it can also hinder it.

In recent years, various approaches to land reform, not least  the expansion of community ownership, have contributed positively to a more successful Scotland by assisting in the reduction of barriers to sustainable development, by strengthening communities and by giving them a greater stake in their future.Social Housing - Eyemouth

The various strands of land reform that exist in Scotland provide a firm foundation for further developments.
