Highland Environment Forum

The Highland Environmental Forum (HEF) is part of the Highland Community Planning Partnership. This delivers the Scottish government's Single Outcome Agreement through partnership working across a wide variety of organisations and subject areas. The Highland Environment Forum members work together on environmental issues that can benefit from a cross organisational approach and to implement the environment section of the Highland Single Outcome Agreement.

Environmental Targets of the Single Outcome Agreement updates:


The aims of the Highland Environment Forum are to:

  • Foster and coordinate activity on environmental matters, both within and at the Highland level.
  • Take forward relevant actions identified in the Single Outcome Agreement, and be a valuable source of practical advice on the joint delivery of SOA outcomes.
  • Identify and respond to emerging environmental agendas, and provide a link between local groups and national strategies, action plans and reporting procedures
  • Raise awareness and promote good practice on environmental issues across Highland.

The Forum is funded by the Highland Council and Scottish Natural Heritage.
