Land Use Strategy

Land Use Strategy for Scotland

The Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 requires a land use strategy to be laid by Scottish Ministers before the Scottish Parliament by 31 March 2011.

The strategy must set out the Government's objectives in relation to sustainable land use, as well as proposals, policies and their associated timescales for meeting those. The objectives, proposals and policies must contribute to obligations under the Act on emissions reduction targets, to climate change adaptation objectives and to sustainable development.
