The Centre for Rural Development has been established to bridge the gap between policy and delivery in rural Scotland. Its purpose is to help translate policy that is made across all areas, including land use, rural communities and rural business. In doing so the Centre is determined to deliver tangible benefits to rural Scotland.
The Centre has been created as a result of an initiative by Scottish Land & Estates, and is committed to taking a collaborative and proactive approach to addressing the delivery of rural policy in Scotland.
At the core of the Centre for Rural Development sits a group of highly respected individuals who are committed to supporting this work and, individually and collectively, bring a wealth of invaluable cross-sector experience in rural issues.
