A multitude of Charitable Land Trusts has been created throughout the UK to take on the ownership and management responsibility for land. These range from individual farms to major rural estates. They all have specific purposes set out in the documents of their constitution, and by their very nature they commit to providing public benefit to justify their charitable status. Objectives might include the advancement of education, protection of cultural heritage or improving the quality of environment for the public good.
We have worked closely with Land Trusts to help them make the most of their land holdings to meet their objectives and generate income in ways that are in tune with their purposes. Our deep understanding of conservation and environmental issues enables us to bridge the gap between commercial estate management and the protection of cultural and natural heritage. Our commitment to positive relationships enables us to help build the partnerships between owner, occupiers and users of land that will best meet charitable aims, including securing a sound financial future.
Land Trusts we have worked with recently include:
• Soil Association Land Trust
• Biodynamic Land Trust
• Canal and Rivers Trust
• Private landowning trusts
