Guide to the review of Scotland's first Land Use Strategy

The Scottish Government is reviewing its Land Use Strategy and has produced a short guide on how to provide views on its revision.

Scotland’s Land Use Strategy provides a framework for decision-makers to make the best use of land resources, aiming to encourage stewardship, support livelihoods, link communities to land and provide benefits for people and nature.

The Land Use Strategy is required by the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009. The first Strategy was published in 2011 and must be reviewed within five years. The second Strategy will be published by March 2016.

The Scottish Government has started reviewing the Land Use Strategy and would like views on what it should contain and actions required to deliver it. It intends to build on the first Strategy and its Vision, Objectives and Principles, and focus on how to secure delivery of more integrated land use.

Questions for which views are sought include:

• What have been the successes, barriers and challenges to delivering the Land Use Strategy?

• What should the second Strategy focus on?

• What actions are needed to deliver it?

• Who needs to act?

• What does the Strategy need to say to support delivery?

• What is your role?
