Policy & Lobbying
Scotland's National Transport Strategy (NTS) was published in December 2006, and introduces three key strategic outcomes:
  • Improve journey times and connections between our cities and towns and our global markets to tackle congestion and provide access to key markets - wealthier and fairer, safer and stronger.
  • Reduce emissions to tackle climate change - safer and stronger, wealthier and fairer.
  • Improve quality, accessibility and affordability of transport, to give people the choice of public transport and real alternatives to the car - greener, healthier, smarter.

Summary version of the National Transport Strategy

Scottish Land & Estates has made representation on a number of transport related issues, including:

  • Fairer treatment for 4 x 4 owners in rural areas.
  • Reduction in fuel duty for rural areas.
