North West Sutherland and Rossshire is one of five pilot areas across Scotland taking part in a Scottish Government pilot happening now. NW2045 is working from the ground up in seeking out ways to develop a more integrated approach to land use change decision-making. 

 "The aim of the pilots is to test governance options and partnership working on a regional scale to understand how best to work collaboratively; develop a framework to identify potential land use changes; and to facilitate and signpost funding opportunities for land owners, managers and community groups"
