Antis’ plan to turn grousemoors into housing

Chris Packham’s Revive group has struck its first blow against Scottish grouse shooting, and it is leaving legislators puzzled. Revive’s new report ‘Back To Life’ says that grouseshooting produces just £30 per hectare.

The organisation backed by the TV naturalist says that if Scotland’s grousemoors were turned over to housing or horticulture, they would make a much more profitable £12,000 per hectare. However, even MSPs have rejected Packham’s plan to zone Scotland’s uplands for greenhouses and flats.
