The Land Reform Review Group published a report today, commissioned by the Scottish Government, they set out 62 recommendations in 260 pages. One of which is that an upper limit on the amount of land held privately in Scotland should be introduced. It also calls for an increase in community ownership, ending the involvement of crown estate commissioners and an overhaul of the tax system.
I look forward to following what happens in the wake of these recommendations…. will they help solve this complex problem?
