We will improve Scotland’s system of land ownership, use, rights and responsibilities, so that our land can contribute to a fair and just society while balancing public and private interests.
We will bring forward a new Land Reform Bill. It will ensure that the public interest is considered on any particularly large scale land ownership and introduce a pre-emption in favour of community buy-out where title to land is transferred.
The Scottish Land Fund helps communities take ownership of the land and buildings that matter to them. We will double the fund, increasing it to £20 million per year by the end of the parliament.
