Response to the consultation on Proposals for Establishing the Interim Body to Manage the Crown Estate Assets in Scotland Post-Devolution

30th August 2016

Summary: LINK members regard changes to the management of Crown Estate assets in Scotland as presenting a significant opportunity to improve both the health and governance of Scotland’s terrestrial and marine environment. Our response to the proposals set out in this consultation are that in developing the interim arrangement, Scottish Ministers must:

  1. define “good management” to embed principles of Sustainable Development and environmental stewardship in the interim body’s corporate approach;
  2. ensure the public accountability of the interim body;
  3. set a clear timetable for the development of a more considered legislative framework for managing Crown Estate assets in Scotland
