Although open space in its many forms delivers a multitude of benefits it more often that not represents an ongoing liability to the owner. This may be because of former contamination or just simply in terms of maintenance and management costs.
The Land Trust addresses a simple problem. Over the years, many millions of pounds of public and private money has been spent clearing up derelict and neglected land, but too often maintenance plans don’t match the committment of the original clean-up. The huge one-off costs of land restoration have often proven easier to consider than the steady ongoing costs of maintenance, which tends to be an afterthought.
The Land Trust designs and manages sustainable funding solutions in order to guarantee long term maintenance and community engagement, and secure the future of the site in perpetuity.
