Community Empowerment & Landscape
The research is about how we define ‘landscape’, and how the way this is done affects people’s ability to develop as communities and to influence decisions about the land. It was undertaken in response to concerns about the potential for landscape policy to act as a barrier to rural renewal in Scotland, and to efforts to address the ongoing depopulation of already sparsely-populated areas.
