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.
