The Agricultural Holdings Review Group is currently examining what policy changes and solutions are required to secure a dynamic tenant farming sector and the group is specifically looking for submissions from those with an interest in this sector.
The Review Group has set out what it believes a dynamic and successful tenant farming sector will need to look like if it is to meet the aspirations of the Scottish Government and has established eight specific characteristics on which it is seeking feedback. The group is also considering the degree to which an Absolute Right to Buy (ARtB) would help the sector.
We would encourage all members with an interest to provide their views to the group. The group’s call for evidence can be found here: http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/farmingrural/Agriculture/agricultural-holdings/review-of-legislation
The Group’s latest monthly bulletin, which attempts to provide some insight into what the group is doing, is available here: http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/farmingrural/Agriculture/agricultural-holdings/review-of-legislation/Agriculture
