Getting the best from our land
A Land Use Strategy for Scotland
2016 - 2021
Laid before the Scottish Parliament by the Scottish Ministers on 22 March 2016
in pursuance of Section 57 of the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009
In her introduction to the Scottish Government's Land Use strategy, Environment Minister Aileen McLeod writes:
In 2011 we published Scotland’s first Land Use Strategy. We were optimistic about its potential impact and hopeful that stakeholders would begin to embrace the direction of travel. The past five years have exceeded our expectations in terms of just how much we have achieved and the strength of support for our policies. Not only have we delivered against the proposals set out in the first Land Use Strategy, we have initiated and completed two highly successful land use pilot projects and our work has been showcased across the UK and in Europe.
The last five years have also seen the Scottish Parliament further develop the policy
framework around land use. The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 and

Land Use Strategy. Together they will put communities at the heart of decision
