LINK response to the Land Use Strategy SEA Scoping Report

15th April 2010

LINK members welcome the opportunity to comment on this consultation and to support the development of the Land Use Strategy (LUS). LINK produced its ‘Living with the Land’ report in 2009 which set out LINK’s proposals for the vision, principles and definitions which, LINK believes, should underpin the LUS. We believe that the LUS has the potential to, and should, move land use planning away from a sectoral approach to one which achieves multiple objectives. It must seek synergies and reward multi-benefit land use, and must aim to resolve conflicts. Decisions need to be based on principles of sustainable development, in which environmental and social goals have equal status to economic ones.
