Inelegantly wasted

On 21 September, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and the Scottish Land Commission launched an “innovative partnership and taskforce” to try to get Scotland’s vacant and derelict land into more productive, and more socially and environmentally healthy, use.

Details of the joint initiative can be found here.

Channelling the Sex Pistols, this campaign is hashtagged #notsoprettyvacant. (I suppose INXS’s “Elegantly Wasted” would not have fitted the ethos.)

I was interviewed about this on BBC Radio Scotland’s Newsdrive programme on 21 September (available online until 21 October). I managed to restrain the urge to make any inappropriate references to punk music in that interview: who says punk is dead?

Anyway, I will let that interview, and the SEPA and ScotLandCom resources, speak for themselves, and watch how this all develops – quite literally – in the future.
