The Regional Land Use Framework has been developed under the Regional Land Use Partnership pilot, following a period of extensive stakeholder engagement in 2022/23 facilitated by the Southern Uplands Partnership.
The RLUF sets out a concise vision and objectives for land use across the region, providing information on existing land uses, the benefits they provide, and drivers for land use change. It recognises the urgency of joined up action to address the climate and biodiversity crises and identifies some of the priority changes in land use that are going to be needed.
The RLUF has been developed with the input of many stakeholders across the region to date.
We are inviting all organisations, communities and individuals to comment on the Consultation draft.
