SCELG member Malcolm Combe contributes to RURALIZATION Report on legal and policy arrangements in 28 member states
As part of the EU Horizon 2020 financed project RURALIZATION on ‘The opening of rural areas to renew rural generations, jobs and farms’, a Report on the factors that contribute to land use opportunities across the European Union (including, for the purposes of that research, the constituent nations of the United Kingdom) was recently published.
This Report on legal and policy arrangements in 28 member states involved experts in the various jurisdictions responding to a questionnaire, with a view to ascertaining the contributing factors to land allocation and initiatives that provide access to land. Our Malcolm Combe, together with Dr Annie McKee of the James Hutton Institute, provided the Scottish response to the questionnaire. That response can be found at pages 348 – 375 of the final report.
