In this webinar our panel of speakers will discuss the issue of repopulation in the South of Scotland, focussing on areas such as affordable housing and employment opportunities. Hear how communities in the South are at the leading edge in responding to the need to revive our rural towns and villages.
We’ll also be joined by Murdo Mackay from West Harris Trust who will be sharing how the lack of young people on the estate ignited their plans to successfully tackle their own repopulation issues.

Murdo Mackay – Chair, West Harris Trust

Prof. Russel Griggs – Chairman, South of Scotland Enterprise
Dr. Calum MacLeod – Policy Director, Community Land Scotland
Jamie Little – Strategic Housing Investment, D&G Council
