Community Engagement Baseline Survey for Communities


1. Introduction


The Scottish Land Commission is working with communities and with people who own and manage land to make sure that all people in Scotland have the opportunity to be involved in decisions about land that significantly affect them.

Last year, the Scottish Government published Guidance on Engaging Communities in Decisions Relating to Land. Over the next couple of years the Scottish Land Commission will make an assessment of the effectiveness of this guidance, and set out our recommendations for any further steps to improve its impact. This survey will help us to establish a baseline against which progress can be measured, and to identify where further support needs to be developed by us or other organisations.

We want to hear from residents and community organisations in both urban and rural Scotland: 

- to learn more about how the way land or buildings are managed has an impact on your community
- to know what opportunities you have to influence the decisions made when land use changes
- to hear what type of support is needed to make engagement more effective

The survey should take around 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

If you have any queries about the survey you can contact us by email at, or phone us at 01463 423300.
