A Consultation on the Long Term Management of the Crown Estate in Scotland.

Executive Summary

The Crown Estate in Scotland includes a diverse portfolio of property, rights and interests that influence many aspects of rural and coastal life in Scotland. Devolution of the management of the Crown Estate in Scotland is a historic event that represents a genuine opportunity to change the fabric of Scottish society. The devolution creates significant opportunities for Scotland, local communities and industry and we need to take advantage of this major change. There can be a new focus on how we manage Crown Estate assets in Scotland. We need to focus on delivering a new system that works for Scotland’s future while also ensuring a smooth and ordered transition. This consultation is a once in a lifetime opportunity to help shape the future management of The Crown Estate in Scotland and how the revenue can be used to benefit Scotland and communities. It is vital that all interests respect other views on the options for change and grasp the opportunities by working together to agree practical solutions.
