Forestry and Land Management (Scotland) Bill- Stage 1 Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee report

Forestry and Land Management (Scotland) Bill- Stage 1 Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee report.

https://digitalpublications.parliament.scot/Committees/Report/REC/2017/10/6/Stage-1-report-on-the-Forestry-and-Land-Management--Scotland-Bill

Following the recent REC Committee call for evidence on the Forestry and Land Management (Scotland) Bill, the stage 1 report has now been published. As previously reported to members, SACS responded to the consultation emphasising the importance of the role of the fieldsports community in integrated land management. While there is no express mention of fieldsports in today's report (which takes a general view), we are pleased to see that community engagement, genuinely sustainable land management and the requirement for detail on how the proposed new land agency will operate, are all high on the Committee's agenda. We now await the outcome of the Committee's recommendations.
