This is one of six briefing papers prepared by Professor David Adams of the University of Glasgow to help explain key proposals for urban land reform made in 2014 by the Scottish Government’s Land Reform Review Group (LRRG) to whom he acted as an independent adviser. This paper focuses on the LRRG’s recommendations that to achieve the Scottish Government’s national housebuilding targets and place-making aspirations requires “the establishment of a Housing Land Corporation, a new national body charged with the acquisition and development of sufficient land” and that the Corporation “should have explicit performance targets that recognise the specific needs of small rural communities and an extended operational role to enable these to be addressed” (see pages 132-141 of the LRRG report).
