Pentland Hills collaborative land use management reports published
CEP's reports to the Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) on adopting a collaborative approach to land use management in the Pentland Hills Regional Park have been published.
As part of the project, CEP was asked to adopt the ecosystem approach which is a way of working that combines the need to manage nature in terms of dynamic ecosystems whilst involving affected communities and other stakeholders in decision-making. The project explored, with the Park’s Consultative Forum of local stakeholders, opportunities to work with nature and sustain the provision of key ecosystem services - the benefits people get from nature - in the Park.
The findings of this research are documented in the following reports:
- Consultative Forum Report
- Consultative Forum Report Technical Annex
- Consultative Forum Report Executive Summary
These outputs will play a key role informing the next Pentland Hills Regional Park Management Plan (2017-2027).
