Scottish Land Commission

Driving land reform

The Scottish Land Commission’s purpose is to provide direction, leadership and strategic thought to land reform in Scotland.  In doing so we will support and enable the realisation of the Scottish Government’s vision of a Scotland where the ownership, management and use of land and buildings contributes to the collective benefit of everybody.

In our first year of operation and beyond, we hope to meet as many interested organisations and individuals as possible. We will endeavour to:

  • work for all of Scotland’s people,
  • ensure that our decisions and recommendations are thoroughly evidence-based,
  • place a high value on innovation, and
  • be an open, transparent and outward facing organisation.
