Land Use Resources
Our land is under greater pressure than ever before. The Community Planning Alliance believes that a land use strategy to manage these pressures is imperative. We were delighted that Baroness Young of Scone mentioned the ‘pressure cooker’ effect, that is illustrated by our Grassroots Map, in a House of Lords debate in the autumn of 2021. We support her campaign for a land use strategy.
