Land @ Lunch: Shaping Markets to Create Better Places – Land Assembly by the Public Sector
Come along to learn, be inspired and find out how you can get involved and make positive change happen at our lunchtime bite-sized events. Land is at the heart of Scotland’s identity, economy and communities and is vital in tackling the climate and nature crises. The Scottish Land Commission is working to create a Scotland where everybody benefits from the ownership, management and use of the nation’s land. Join us for ‘Land @ Lunch’ – our brand-new series of friendly, conversational briefings open to all – where we’ll introduce topical issues at the heart of our work right now as we seek to build a strong and dynamic relationship between Scotland’s land and its people. These informal 45-minute lunchtime sessions aim to stimulate practical change in how land is owned, used and managed.
To achieve net zero, Scotland needs to develop more housing on brownfield land. This session will look at how public bodies can enable land re-use by assembling sites and reducing risk for developers. Drawing on case studies from Scotland and from Europe, it will look at how public bodies can assemble land to help create places with quality green space that support active travel.
