National Park designation for land recently bought for carbon offset and “greenwashing” purposes

That a National Park be designated over the area most covered by recent purchases of large tracts of land, often not coming onto the open market, for the purposes of carbon offsetting, “greenwashing” of companies responsibilities and financial speculation.

Why the contribution is important

Land prices have recently soared, encouraged by the above practices, reducing the ability for individuals or communities to have direct and affordable control of their local area and assets. A National Park designation on such an area would at least return some sort of control to the people of Scotland, give some disincentives to speculation and would be a constructive use of the otherwise debatable proposition of a new National Park.
