These questions and more were considered by an expert panel at a Futures Forum event on 14 May 2019, chaired by Claudia Beamish MSP. As Chris said, we need to see communities as part of the solution rather than a challenge to conservation goals.
We may then apply our discretion under the user terms to amend or delete comments. Those elements provide the starting point to create a vision for the future. We wholeheartedly agree that housing is a human right and a catalyst for all other fundamental rights. Although the village is believed to have been founded in the sixth century, what is left is a beautifully restored 16th-century town full of cobbled streets, red-tiled buildings, and views on the estuary.
However, these economic opportunities have yet to be fully realised for the benefit of rural Scotland. Megan MacInnes is one of six Scottish Land Commissioners.
In addition, engagement was highlighted as an extremely important way to navigate and try to resolve the tensions between conservation and development that Chris outlined.
They discussed the challenges and trends, explored the potential futures ahead of us, and considered the outcomes we want to achieve by 2030. While you have traditional conversations about people leaving rural communities due to lack of access to higher education, affordable housing or employment, now there is an added factor where there is not good connectivity that can also lead to rural depopulation.
We will renew the Community Empowerment Act, and introduce new Land Reform Legislation with a presumption in favour of community buy-outs. Abstract Depopulation was an important issue affecting the lives of the inhabitants of rural Scotland in the inter-war years and throughout the twentieth century.
It will also provide information to enable us to set up a relocation support or advisory service and make the move for people as smooth as possible.
