The Scottish Government is required to publish a statement on land rights and responsibilities and review this every 5 years. The statement will contain a set of principles on land rights and responsibilities, to ensure that the full public benefits from land in Scotland are realised.
A consultation on the proposed statement closed on 10 March 2017 and responses are currently being analysed. There will be a duty on Scottish Ministers to take the statement in to account when exercising their functions to help promote the principles of the statement from 1 October 2017.
Further details will be published here in due course.
