The Crown Estate's Scotland Report 2012: Investing in Tomorrow

The Crown Estate's report outlines its achievements over the last financial year, providing an overview of its investment in Scotland, whilst also setting out its plans for the future.

The report is available online at www.thecrownestate.co.uk/scotland .

One of its key themes running through the report is its contribution to the growth of the Scottish economy through the expertise of its people and the investment of its resourses. This is evident in its commitment to offshore wind, wave and tidal energy programmes, as well as in key sectors such as tourism and aquaculture.

During the course of the last year, it has made changes to becoming more accountable in the way it works and more responsive to the interests of local communities. The report outlines some of the measures it is undertaking to address this, including the introduction of local management agreements, which will give communities the opportunity to manage areas of foreshore and seabed.

It hopes that you will find the report of interest.
