Upholding Access Rights – Recent Land Reform case law: developments and updates

Over the last 12 months, two decisive land reform cases have concluded in the courts, both of which could be significant in how Access Authorities approach their statutory responsibilities. At this event we will delve into the detail of those cases from the perspectives of both the legal teams and access specialists involved, and discuss the legacies and lessons learnt which could benefit the sector. The day will also cover the latest mediation process work being undertaken by the SORA (the Scottish Outdoor Recreation Association) which may provide another tool for Authorities as they seek to resolve challenging cases.

The event will be of particular interest to both public and private sector legal specialists, outdoor access professionals, other Access Authority staff and access and recreation organisations, as well as anyone with an interest in the law affecting access to land.

Where – The National Piping Centre & The Pipers’ Tryst Hotel

When – Monday 3 June 2019 10:30 – 16:00

Networking Day and AGM, Wednesday 6th June 2018

SOAN networking day 6 June 2018, Linlithgow  Burgh Halls, 10.00-16.00

Creating better access for everyone – designing for, and encouraging, inclusion in the outdoors

SOAN’s June networking day will focus on what inclusive design really looks like when trying to reduce the obstacles to outdoor access for all.  These barriers may be based on social or cultural issues, infrastructure or ability, but we all have a duty to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy the benefits of being outdoors.

Topics covered will include the legislative context to inclusion and the guidance available.  The event will also highlight case studies where inclusion has been a focus and there will be workshops where delegates will have the opportunity to discuss these issues more informally.

The event will also include the SOAN AGM.

The cost is £50
