Live Consultations

SCDI responds to many consultations every year. Our members shape our policy positions. We want to hear your views to inform our influencing of government, parliament and policymakers. This page shows what’s coming up.

Crown Estate Scotland Draft Corporate Plan

Crown Estate Scotland are consulting on their draft Corporate Plan for 2020 to 2023 to ensure that its final version fully reflects views from all of Scotland.

The draft Plan covers activity related to rural estates, coastline, seabed and more. It’s likely to be of interest to those in marine tourism, ports & harbours, offshore renewables, farming, forestry, and aquaculture, as well as the general public. You can read more here.

We’re responding on behalf of our members. We would welcome input from our members to marc.strathie@scdi.org.uk before COB Thursday 5 December.

The Replacement of European Structural Funds in Scotland Post-Brexit

If the UK leaves the EU, it will no longer receive support from European Structural Funds which have invested in the economy and environment across Scotland for more than four decades. Under the current 2014-2020 programme Scotland benefits from over £780m of such funding through the European Regional Development Fund and the European Social Fund.

The UK Government has indicated its intention to provide successor funding through a UK Shared Prosperity Fund, but has yet to provide the necessary detail.

The Scottish Government is consulting on how any successor funding vehicle should be designed to meet the needs of Scotland’s economy and society. You can read more here.

We’re responding on behalf of our members on this vital issue. We would welcome input from our members to david.kelly@scdi.org.uk before COB Friday 31 January 2020.
