Response to A Draft Land Use Strategy For Scotland

SRPBA Responds to the Draft Land Use Strategy

The SRPBA has submitted its response to the Scottish Government consultation on the draft Land Use Strategy and advised that it is supportive of the principle of a Land Use Strategy (LUS) and believes that the Scottish Government is to be commended for attempting to produce an overarching strategy for integrated land use in Scotland.

However, possibly partly as a result of the tight timescales set out in the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009, the SRPBA believes that the draft Strategy produced lacks detail and as a result may not have an immediate demonstrable impact on policy making in Scotland. We feel that it is high level with some general policy direction, but lacking in detailed proposals and policies, and may be more accurately described as a collection of aspirations rather than a strategy.
