More dates added to Land Commission’s series of events

 
The Scottish Land Commission has added more dates to its series of Meet & Greet events which are taking place across Scotland over the coming months.
 
Due to the success of the first Meet & Greet events held in April and May the Commission has announced the addition of three new dates to the series, with meetings to take place in Inverness, Islay and Oban.  
 
Chair of the Scottish Land Commission, Andrew Thin, said:
“We are really encouraged by the response to the Meet & Greets so far.  We have had varied audiences at the public meetings from those interested in community land ownership to tenant farming and with representation from both urban and rural communities.  
 
“The discussions at the meetings have been really insightful and are helping the Commission to form our priorities for our three year strategic plan.  
 
“We are keen to keep the momentum going with the additional meetings in Inverness, Islay and Oban and we hope to have even more over the coming months.  This is a rolling programme of events and we would like to engage with as many people as possible.  I would urge everyone to attend a Meet & Greet in their area to find out more about who we are, what we do and importantly; how land reform can directly impact their community.”
