Scotland’s landscapes are central to our identity and wellbeing. They are at the heart of our nation and they are central to the Scottish Government aspirations contained in its key historic and natural environment policies, including the common statement prepared by the Scottish Historic Environment Forum.
This Position Statement sets out the vision and approach of NatureScot and HES for managing change in Scotland’s landscapes in more detail. As the lead heritage bodies in Scotland, our organisations have statutory roles in the conservation, management and sustainable use of our landscape resources, and in promoting their enjoyment and understanding.
The Action Plan accompanying the Position Statement has now been published. It sets out the main areas of work that both organisations have committed to starting over the next two years to deliver the aims of the Statement.
Read the Position Statement and Action Plan on the Historic Environment Scotland website, published in 2019.
