Communities, bio-diversity and climate change are key cross cutting themes and a key objective is to improve accessibility and relevance to all, not just those with a direct interest in land use.

Section 3 uses different landscapes to talk about land use and section 4 is a call for evidence of the impact of land use, land use change or access to the outdoors on those with protected characteristics, island communities and young people.

The deadline for responses is 17th January 2021.
