Due to changes made to the official Scottish Parliament website at the start of 2011, our parser that used to fetch their web pages and convert them into more structured information has stopped working. We’re afraid we cannot give a timescale as to when we will be able to cover the Scottish Parliament again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Section 6 — Land over which access rights not exercisable
Land Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3
Rhona Brankin (Labour)
Amendment 185 seeks to remove plantations of young trees from the list of growing crops over which access rights are not exercisable. I am pressing amendment 185 in response to the concerns of community forestry groups that plant and manage forests in different parts of Scotland and which, far from wanting to keep people away from young trees, want to encourage people in the community, especially children, to be involved in the management and development of community forests.
