You have until 5pm on Tuesday 23rd July to voice your support for hutting in Scotland. For the first time ever, the Scottish Government has proposed that recreational huts should be included in the Scottish Planning Policy – but the consultation ends tomorrow, so respond now! If we support this now, it will be a crucial first step towards making huts more accessible to people in Scotland. You can do this quickly and easily, by taking part in our e-action, and encouraging your friends and family to do so too. Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter using the tabs below. There is only 1 day left to respond to the consultation!
We all know the simple pleasure of small, rustic buildings close to nature. They’re a great place for kids and adults alike to learn about living simply, away from the over-consumption of city life. In Scandinavia it is normal for families to enjoy breaks in a hut in the countryside. Scotland, too, has a history of simple buildings like bothies and but’n’bens which form an important part of our cultural landscape. To allow future generations to benefit from these little gems, we must act now to smooth the way for a new hutting culture in Scotland.
