Land, making the most of our rights and responsibilities – free online sessions

6th September 2022

The Scottish Land Commission is hosting free online sessions as an opportunity for people in and around the Cairngorms National Park to find out more about the tools and resources available to help support communities, individuals, landowners and land managers develop good practice in relation to land.  Join Karen Grant, Good Practice Adviser for the Scottish Land Commission, for an opportunity to ask questions and take part in discussion about your land rights and responsibilities in and around the Cairngorms National Park.

Land matters in so many ways – from housing, food production, biodiversity, climate change mitigation, flood alleviation, economic opportunities, and recreation, to our sense of belonging to the place we live. Our relationship with land is crucial to ensure a healthy and resilient future for communities, the environment and the economy, and everyone has both land rights and responsibilities.

Scotland is the only country in the world where the government has committed to a Land Rights and Responsibilities Statement (LRRS), which sets out principles including transparency and good stewardship in land ownership and management. Karen will be joined in this session by Emma Cooper, the Scottish’s Land Commission’s Head of Land Rights and Responsibilities; Gemma Campbell, Land Rights and Responsibilities Manager; and Lisa Busby, Training Coordinator, to explore more about the LRRS and how it is already helping to embed good practice in land ownership and management.

This free online sessions are part of the Heritage Horizons: Cairngorms 2030 programme, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund with thanks to National Lottery players.

Three sessions are being held online and you can book using the links below:
