Episode 123 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week Craig talks to Kathie Pollard, Policy & Practice Lead at the Scottish Land Commission, about Scotland’s vacant and derelict land. Derelict land is more than an eyesore. It represents a loss of resources, unused potential and can even harm the vitality and self-image of a community. SLC have developed tools and resources to help communities bring derelict land in their area back into use.

The SLC’s interactive derelict land map can be found here.

The community action route map can found here.

More case studies about reclaimed derelict land can be read here.
