Scottish Land Commission invites Skye residents to public meeting

The Scottish Land Commission are continuing their successful series of public meetings this year, the first one of 2018 will take place in Portree.

The Scottish Land Commission, which was officially established on the 1 April 2017, is holding an informal public meeting to give people across Skye the opportunity to find out more about the work of the organisation and to meet with Commissioners .

The event is being held at the Fingal Centre in Portree on Thursday 22 February at 7pm.

Chair of the Scottish Land Commission, Andrew Thin, said:

“The Commissioners and I are really keen to speak to people from across Skye and to let them know more about the work the Commission has started to undertake and find out what they think the priorities for land reform should be. The public meeting is also an opportunity to find out more about land reform and the benefits it can bring to you and your community.

“This is one of a series of public meetings taking place across Scotland throughout the year from Stornoway to Stirling, Ayr  to Aboyne and we hope to meet as many people as possible.  I would encourage everyone to attend and make the most of the opportunity to meet with us to discuss the land reform agenda.  It is important that all voices are heard and we work together to make the most of our land.”

We would also like to invite residents of Raasay to attend a public meeting on Friday 23 February at 10am at the Community Hall, Raasay.

The events are free and tea and coffee will be provided. For more information visit www.landcommission.gov.scot, call 0300 244 4452 or email info@landcommission.gov.scot.
