On the 27th July Community Land Scotland had the first full board meeting with our new Chair. Ian A. Hepburn who is a director of North West Mull Community Woodland Company and the Community Woodland Association was appointed as the new Chair at the board meeting on the 30th May 2017.
Ian said “I’m very pleased to have been appointed chair of Community Land Scotland but also aware of the hard acts that I have to follow. I’m convinced that we will see the continued growth of Community land ownership and we will continue to work with any and all bodies that we feel can assist in the sector’s development. In particular we are working with the Land Commission and would encourage all our members to engage with the Commission’s ongoing series of “meet and greet” events.”
