The Land Trust provides a cost effective management solution for open space and green infrastructure. This land can deliver significant community benefits, improving health, social cohesion, providing an educational resource and uplifting the local economy. We have ownership of some 1,000 hectares of land and a strong balance sheet to provide financial stability for our operations.
The Trust has the powers and skills to take land into its ownership and to take on acceptable risks in perpetuity. Alongside this we can accept funding streams to ensure that a sustainable management regime will exist - also in perpetuity. This guarantees that the land is managed properly; protecting the original investment made in creating the open space and ensuring it has a permanent and positive effect on the economy and environment of a local area.
We are a community led organisation. We enable people to shape the place they live and empower community ownership of the whole lifecycle of a space from design and development to ongoing management.
