Wild Animals in Travelling Circuses (Scotland) Act 2018

Schedule 2: Crown Land

Crown land

32.Under paragraph 1, the exercise of a power of entry under schedule 1 onto Crown land requires the consent of the “appropriate authority”. Paragraph 2(1) defines “Crown land” by reference to ownership of interests in certain types of land. This includes land belonging to the Queen both in right of the Crown and in right of her private estates (such as the Balmoral estate), and land belonging to an office-holder in the Scottish Administration or department of the Government of the United Kingdom. Who constitutes the “appropriate authority” from whom consent is required depends on the ownership or management of the land, and is set out in paragraph 2(2). For example, in the case of land belonging to Her Majesty in right of the Crown which is managed by an office-holder in the Scottish Administration, then the appropriate authority is the office-holder in the Scottish Administration.
