The Scottish Government has opened consultation on Land Rights and Responsibilities. The consultation aims to gather views from stakeholders and the public on the statement on land rights and responsibilities, which is designed to set out the principles for land rights and responsibilities in Scotland  and whether any revisions are required.

The Land Rights and Responsibilities Statement was first published in 2017 and is reviewed every five years. The Statement sets out a vision of a strong and dynamic relationship between Scotland’s land and its people. In this vision all land contributes to a modern and successful country, and land rights and responsibilities are recognised and fulfilled. It is founded on six principles that should underpin every decision about land.

The consultation closes on 28 January 2022
