Highland Local Housing Strategy Survey

To ensure the Local Housing Strategy reflects the view of local residents, a survey will run until 30 September 2022. It asks local people to share their views on the housing issues that matters most in their community and how they feel resources, investment and services should be targeted to address these issues. All Highland residents are urged to participate in the survey which should take no more than 5 minutes to complete.

Closes: Friday, September 30

Planning with People: Community Engagement and Participation Guidance - Service User Questionnaire

Did you know that people living in Scotland have the right to get involved in the design and delivery of new health or social care services, and to comment on changes to existing services?

When it comes to designing or making changes to these services, it is important that NHS Boards, Health and Social Care Partnerships and Local Authorities listen to the views of people who might use them. The process of finding out your views is called community engagement.

Land Reform in a Net Zero Nation

Scotland has a proud history of land reform going back to the early days of devolution. The Scottish Government are committed to bringing forward a new Land Reform Bill in this parliamentary session. Over the summer, we are undertaking a wide-ranging consultation on our proposals for the measures it should contain.

The Bill will be ambitious. It will address long-standing concerns about the highly concentrated pattern of land ownership in rural areas of Scotland. At the same time, we want to ensure that our land is owned, managed, and used in ways that rise to the challenges of today: net zero, nature restoration, and a just transition.

Closes: Sunday, October 30
