Back to Scottish Outdoor Access Code HOMEPAGE

NFUS Response to

SNH Draft Scottish Outdoor Access Code

(Filed 3 October 03)
www.land-care.org.uk

The National Farmers Union of Scotland (NFUS) kindly provided Land-Care with an electronic copy of its response to the consultation paper produced by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) entitled Draft Scottish Outdoor Access Code (SOAC)(1). The NFUS response can be read in full in pdf format by clicking HERE

Land-Care's comments on the lack of adequate public accessiblity to the responses can be viewed HERE

Land-Care's comments on how the responses to the draft code are going to be assessed and by whom can be viewed HERE

Land-Care's contribution to better openness and communication regarding the responses can be viewed HERE

Land-Care will try and post on its website the full unedited responses of those organisations and persons who are willing to send us electronic versions of the responses that they submitted to SNH. At the least this should help in the education process that is so necessary for an Access Code to be a source of agreement rather than conflict. For education to be effective the information on which it is based needs to be openly available and discussed. The purpose is also to try and help rebuild trust in the government agency SNH and how it is handling this important component of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act.
