Residents invited to public event
THE newly-formed Scottish Land Commission has announced a series of community ‘meet and greet’ events, the next one of which is in Oban.
The Scottish Land Commission, which was officially established on April 1, 2017, is holding an informal event to give people across the region the opportunity to find out more about the work of the organisation and to meet its chairman, Andrew Thin, and land commissioner Lorne MacLeod.
The event is being held at the Corran Halls, Oban, on Thursday August 17 from 7pm to 8.30pm.
Mr Thin said: ‘ The commissioners and I are really keen to get out and about to speak to people across Scotland, in both urban and rural communities.
‘We want to let members of the public know more about the work of the commission and to also find out what they think the priorities for land reform should be.
‘This is one of a number of monthly events taking place across Scotland – from Stornoway to Dumfries, Inverurie to Clydebank – and we hope to meet as many people as possible.
‘Lorne and I will be hosting the event and I would encourage everyone to attend and make the most of the opportunity to meet us to discuss the land reform agenda.
‘It is important that all voices are heard and we work together to make the most of our land.’
The event is free and tea and coffee will be provided.
