Land Commission announce series of events for 2017

The Scottish Land Commission has announced a series of community ‘Meet and Greet’ events.

The events kick off in Fife on 27 April and continue across Scotland over coming months. They are a chance for people to find out more about the work of the newly formed organisation, meet with Commissioners and discuss priorities for land reform.

The Scottish Land Commission was officially established on 1 April 2017.

Chair of the Scottish Land Commission, Andrew Thin, said:

“The Commissioners and I are really keen to get out and about to speak to people, in both urban and rural Scotland, to let them know more about the work of the Commission and to also find out what they think the priorities for land reform should be.

“By holding monthly events throughout the year from Stornoway to Dumfries, Inverurie to Clydebank, we hope to meet as many people as possible. I would encourage everyone to attend and make the most of the opportunity to meet with Commissioners to discuss the land reform agenda. It is important that all voices are heard and we work together to make the most of our land.”
