The Good Practice Adviser will support landowners, land managers and communities, to adopt the Scottish Land Rights and Responsibilities Statement (LRRS) principles by delivering a programme of good practice advice, support and guidance.
We are a public body, established by the Scottish Parliament in 2017, and our role is to advise on changes in policy and law, and to support good practice and change on the ground.
Scotland’s Land Rights and Responsibilities Statement sets out the overall framework for the relationship between people and land in Scotland through six principles. The Land Commission plays a key role to support the practical implementation of these principles. These posts will play a pivotal part in delivering this support and influencing practice on the ground through our Good Practice Programme.
The Good Practice Programme promotes and supports change and good practice in the way land is owned and used by all landownership sectors in both urban and rural Scotland. We work with stakeholders to create a range of protocols, tools and guidance to encourage and enable those with an interest in land to recognise and fulfil their rights and responsibilities. We promote greater diversity in ownership of land including more community ownership, high standards and transparency of land ownership and use, and better community engagement in decisions about land.
