Land @ Lunch: What practical tools are available to tackle vacant and derelict land?

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.

Vacant and derelict land can be a blight on communities, but there is help available! Hear from organisations able to support communities in tackling the challenge of bringing vacant and derelict land back to life.

Emma Cooper, our Head of Land Rights and Responsibilities, will be joined by David Henderson, Advisor for the Community Ownership Support Service team at DTAS, and Carey Doyle, Manager, Community Ownership Hub: Glasgow and Clyde Valley at Community Land Scotland

Collaboration is key, so in this session we will explore how communities, public and private bodies can access support, tools and resources available to organisations in addressing unloved land in their local area.
