Shetland mapping requirement

Section 17 – Shetland mapping requirement

38.This section establishes the Shetland mapping requirement. The requirement applies to the Scottish Ministers, local authorities and other Scottish public authorities with mixed functions or no reserved functions.

39.Unless subsection (2)(b) applies, these bodies must comply with the Shetland mapping requirement when publishing in any form a document that includes a map of Scotland. The Shetland mapping requirement is that, in any map of Scotland, the Shetland Islands must be displayed in a manner that accurately and proportionately represents their geographical location in relation to the rest of Scotland.

40.Subsection (2)(b) sets out that where Ministers or an authority consider that there are reasons not to comply with the Shetland mapping requirement, they must provide, in such manner as they consider appropriate, information about those reasons.
