Land Rights in 21st Century Scotland

1. Do you agree that the Scottish Government should have a stated Land Rights and Responsibilities Policy?

Please select one item
Ticked Yes
No

2. Do you have any comments on the draft Land Rights and Responsibilities Policy?

Enter comments here.
yes its proposes no EU nationals cannot own or manage land in Scotland . My common law partner and stepdaughter are Filipino and do not have UK citizenship. Thus under you proposal they will be refused legal right to inherit and run my land after me. I consider this a breach of my European hum rights and will take this further

3. Considering your long term aspirations for land reform in Scotland, what are the top three actions that you think the Scottish Government should take?

Action One:
once the parliament decided to tax land then they will have to provide cervices, like at present with council tax. for instance they will have to provide a sevice to collect the litter that is dropped by people using the land.
Action Two:
once the parliament decided to tax land then they will have to ensure that public service are available to the land owner like any other tax payer. This will include utilities to their land like Scottish water and broadband provisions no tax without adequate services .
Action Three:
once the parliament will have to educate and inform the public of their legal right to maintain the countryside the use for free and actively prosecute those how vandalize and disrupt landowners livelihoods

No

5. What do you think the advantages or disadvantages of having a Scottish Land Reform Commission would be?

Advantages:
clear ide of how owned the land especial council officials who own stakes in land they are deciding on like happen in Redacted text

taxing people for having land is unfair , if they cant pay they will lose their ancestor land. This is exactly what happened in the highland clearance . chucking the hard working native of their land for people that can pay these new taxes .

6. Do you have any thoughts on the structure, type or remit of any Scottish Land Reform Commission?

yes they need to be elected by the people who govern then . that theses policy changes and assessments need to be local electable and so accountable . having them based in Edinburgh is no better than Westminster
