Salmon Scotland has made a call to raise awareness for making a “greater investment” in rural housing taking advantage of this week’s Programme for Government. The body aims to relocate the millions sent from rural areas to Crown Estate Scotland into investment in coastal areas.
According to the corporation, Scottish farmers have to pay more than £20 million a year to various regulators and quangos. To clarify, through cluttered licensing regimes and rent hikes. This is why it requests for around £10 million of the revenue to be reinvested in rural communities.
