Posted by on Aug 8, 2017 in News | Comments Off

On 29 June 2017, Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Cabinet Secretary for the Environment, made her announcement about what happens next for deer management in Scotland. This followed the Deer Management Review, which comprised the Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) 2016 Assessments of Deer Management Groups and its subsequent report, the review by the Scottish Parliament’s Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform (ECCLR) Committee and its report, and the debate in the Scottish Parliament. The Board of SNH also met on 29 June to discuss its next steps.
