Land Use Strategy in the Scottish Borders

We urge all members in the Scottish Borders to be aware of the Land Use Strategy pilot which is currently underway in the area. 

The aim of the Land Use strategy in the Scottish Borders is to pilot  a mechanism which uses an ecosystems approach (natural capital/nature’s services) to consider existing and future  land uses in  a collective and integrated way and  to establish a means to prioritise or guide decisions so as to optimise the use of the land and to resolve competition or conflicts relating to land use change.

The link to the ‘Land Use Strategy  pilot: Regional land use framework’ can be found  on the Tweed Forum website at:
