Consultation - Environmental Impact of Agricultural Holdings, Small Landholdings and Land Use Tenancy Proposals
The Scottish Government published the consultation paper “Land Reform in a Net Zero Nation” in July 2022 which included a number of proposals relating to agricultural holdings, small landholdings and a new land use tenancy for inclusion in the Land Reform Bill. An analysis of the responses was published in June 2023 and is available here. It is anticipated that the Land Reform Bill will be published before the end of the year.
In the meantime, a new consultation has been published to ensure that the environmental impact of the proposals in relation to agricultural holdings, small landholdings and a new land use tenancy is subject to detailed examination. The consultation closes on 11th December 2023 and is available here.
