Crown Estate Scotland (Interim Management), trading as Crown Estate Scotland, was established by The Crown Estate Scotland (Interim Management) Order 2017. Under The Crown Estate Transfer Scheme 2017, the functions of the Crown Estate Commissioners, and the rights and liabilities set out in the transfer scheme, transferred from the Commissioners to Crown Estate Scotland.

Crown Estate Scotland operates under a Framework Document drawn up by the Scottish Government. This sets out our:

  • Functions, duties and powers
  • Aims, objectives and targets
  • Responsibilities and accountability, including our relationship with Scottish Government
  • Plans, budgets and controls
  • External accountability arrangements
  • Staff management arrangements
  • Certain aspects of our financial framework

Scottish Ministers appoint our Chair and the Board. The Commissioner for Ethical Standards in Public Life in Scotland regulates the appointments. The Chair has a three-year term and Board members have two or three year terms, with a total maximum length of service of eight years.

We will publish the minutes and papers of Board meetings as part of our commitment to openness and transparency.  Some papers may not be published for statutory / legal reasons, if the information is commercially sensitive, or if it relates to the formulation of government policy. 

Papers from the first Board meeting, held in June 2017, will be published here shortly. Below is Code of Conduct (see for more information) and Register of Interests.
