Supporting impact - Scottish Crown Estate net revenue: local authority use and insights

Net Revenues from the Scottish Crown Estate have been distributed to coastal Local Authorities for the benefit of coastal communities since 2019. This study was commissioned as part of the review process for the first two rounds of distribution of Scottish Crown Estate net revenues.

Overarching vision

If we are to address the major challenges our society faces and to unlock the greatest benefit to communities, a roll on from earlier approaches and any form of "business-as-usual" isn't going to make a big enough impact; we need to find scale.

Flexible, ongoing monies such as net revenues can help unlock large-scale action through focused and innovative decision-making, without losing the advantages of a local and regional place-based approach.

We think scale can be found by unlocking Collective impact, including the development and use of integrated strategic planning, greater use of blended finance models and by creating space for innovation. This section explores these themes, what may be holding them back and ways to accelerate activity towards achieving even greater scale.
