Scottish Land Commission invites Cairngorms residents to online public meeting
Cairngorms residents are invited to share their views about land and land reform from the comfort of their own homes.
The informal meeting is one of a number being held by the Scottish Land Commission – from Shetland to the Borders, and Fraserburgh to Renfrew – to hear from people about their hopes over the way land is owned, managed and used in their area.
By holding the meetings online the Commission is hoping to encourage greater levels of input and participation from the public.
Chair of the Scottish Land Commission, Andrew Thin, said: “Land is at the heart of Scotland’s identity, economy and communities, so it matters that it is owned and used in a fair and productive way.
“We are keen to meet with people across the country to discuss the land issues that are important to them and how the ownership and use of land realises Scotland’s potential.”
The meetings cover a wide range of topics – from land ownership and transforming vacant and derelict land, to housing, land rights and responsibilities, and the work of the Tenant Farming Commissioner.
Andrew Thin added: “We want to speak with as many people as possible and are using online meetings to make that happen. I would encourage people to join us from the comfort of their own home to discuss how we can make more of Scotland’s land for Scotland’s people.”
The free event is being held online on Thursday 19 May 2022 at 7:00 pm and all residents in and around the Cairngorms National Park are welcome to attend. Book now at landcommission.gov.scot/cairngorms.
