Royal Society Commission Land Use Decision-Making Research

Gavin Parker3 COLLAGE 1 mtime20200316102215

The work will review the way that rural land use has been regulated over time – particularly pertinent at this critical juncture in rural land-use policy and practice given Brexit and climate challenges. The work will include recommending how land-use decisions may be better organised to deliver enhanced environmental and social outcomes.

The Royal Society’s Living Landscapes policy programme aims to inform a long-term vision for how the UK manages its land in a way that combines agricultural productivity with sound environmental stewardship. For more information on the programme, visit the Royal Society website.
