Private land businesses must have their say on Land Reform in a Net Zero Nation
Senior Partner Malcolm Taylor is urging land-based business across rural Scotland to respond to the Scottish Government’s public consultation on their new Land Reform Bill.
This new piece of legislation will be the third bill of its type since the Scottish Parliament was reconvened in 1999 and the deadline for responses is looming large on 30th October.
Malcolm Taylor, who heads up Bell Ingram’s Forfar office, said: “As rural land managers for over a century, we understand the key role our farm and estate businesses play in supporting a thriving rural economy. It is our hope that the government recognises the part that our clients can play in delivering modern and diverse land use.”
“Land reform is an extremely complex issue, and it is of vital importance that private land businesses have their say. If you have never responded to a consultation before, now is the time to do so, or instruct your land manager to do so on your behalf.”
