Opinion piece on the land reform challenge by Peter Peacock

Peter Peacock’s opinion paper sets out a discussion on what he believes is the need for the Scottish Government to be more radical in the forthcoming draft Land Reform Bill. He convincingly sets out a central challenge to all of us: “Is Scotland to finally act or eternally air our shared national grievance that so few own so much land?”

Essential truths in land reform is a paper by Peter Peacock, a former Highland Council Leader, MSP and Cabinet Secretary and our first Policy Director. We published this paper today 26th June 2023 as part of an ongoing series of papers by independent writers, academics and commentators to promote understanding and stimulate debate on issues relevant to the land debate in Scotland.
