Consultation launched on future of allotments legislation


Rural Affairs Secretary Richard Lochhead has this week launched a consultation which explores the ways in which the legislation relating to allotments could be amended. 
The consultation has been prepared to reflect the key areas raised during the recent consultation on the proposed Community Empowerment and Renewal Bill and include:
Reviewing the definition of allotment; 
Reviewing the powers and duties of Local Authorities in relation to allotments; and 
Identifying any other areas of the legislation that may need to be updated and, or simplified.
Responses to this consultation are expected to feed directly into the development of a draft CERB that will be consulted on this summer.
Scottish Land & Estates will be responding to this consultation and members with an interest are encouraged to contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
