A SURF Alliance for Action event outcomes paper captures five important learning outcomes on local government perspectives of policy changes in support of the ‘normalisation’ of community land ownership.

SURF’s People and Sector Connector Service is a forum of local government officers with responsibilities for place-based regeneration across Scotland, who consider the wider implications of lessons from SURF’s Alliance for Action place programme.

Group members recently gathered in Edinburgh to engage in constructive and informed discussion around the themes of land reform and community ownership, and to hear about new SURF research for the Scottish Land Commission. The event outcomes paper features a summary of discussions and presentations, including an overview of SURF’s ‘Land and Communities: Beyond the Echo Chambers’ research paper.
