Research findings and a report on the evaluation of two regional land use pilot projects have been published.

In 2013, the Scottish Government initiated two regional land use pilot projects in Aberdeenshire and the Scottish Borders to test an innovative approach to land use decision-making. An independent evaluation was carried out in parallel with the pilot projects to consider the processes of developing and managing the projects as well as the final outputs.

The Report on the Evaluation of the Regional Land Use Framework Pilots and Research Findings were published recently. You can download the documents using the links below.

Information on the pilot projects can be found on the Land Use Strategy webpages of the Scottish Government website.
