For this week’s task, select a news article which talks about a conflict concerning land use (not necessarily in Scotland):
Explain the nature of the conflict, the stakeholder groups involved and which particular drivers they are prioritising.
What was the conclusion of the conflict (what decision was made)?
Which stakeholders influenced the final decision and how was power distributed?
What impact did the decision have for the ‘losing’ drivers, the ones which were not represented in the final decision?
And for extra points- Over the past five years, the Scottish Land Commission has implemented and recommended a number of changes to how land is used and how land use decisions are made.
Choose one of these polices/recommendations and explain how it has/would have/will change the nature of the decision-making process in your example.
If you don’t think any current policies/recommendations could change the nature of the conflict and/or its resolution, please suggest a policy which would. https://www.landcommission.gov.scot/
