The Land Reform Policy Group was established in October 1997 to "identify and assess proposals for land reform in rural Scotland, taking account of their cost, legislative and administrative implications and their likely impact on the social and economic development of rural communities and on the natural heritage".[1] Two consultation papers were issued in February and September 1998 respectively. A final report 'Recommendations for Action' not intended as a consulation paper was published in January 1999.[2]
