Scottish Land Commission

Land is at the heart of Scotland’s identity, economy and communities.

The Scottish Land Commission is driving a programme of land reform spanning both urban and rural land, to create a Scotland where land is owned and used in ways that are fair, responsible and productive.

Land is at the heart of Scotland’s identity, economy and communities and is vital in tackling the climate and nature crises. The Scottish Land Commission is working to create a Scotland where everybody benefits from the ownership, management and use of the nation’s land. Join them for ‘Land @ Lunch’ – their brand-new series of friendly, conversational briefings open to all – where they'll introduce topical issues at the heart of their work right now as they seek to build a strong and dynamic relationship between Scotland’s land and its people. These informal 45-minute lunchtime sessions aim to stimulate practical change in how land is owned, used and managed.  Collaboration is key, so they will explore how communities, public and private bodies can access support, tools and resources available to organisations in addressing unloved land in their local area.

Emma Cooper will be joined by David Henderson, Advisor for COSS at DTAS, and Carey Doyle, Manager, Community Ownership Hub: Glasgow and Clyde at CLS.
