Jean Urquhart MSP

Jean Urquart is a small business owner, supporter of the arts and rural traditions in the Highlands and Islands and is currently MSP for the Highlands and Islands Region.  Jean is passionate about the value of crofting, population growth in H’s&I’s, social justice and land reform.

Jean supports Community Land Scotland because…

“Scotland was still a feudal country until the late 20th century and continues to lag behind every European country in terms of land ownership, land laws, land use and land taxes all of which are indicators of the real need for reform. Land reform in Scotland must surely now become a priority issue for all of us whether local and national government members, tenant farmer, community groups (urban and rural) and everyone frustrated by restrictions to potential use of or progressive developments that are in the local and public interest.”
