Land Trust wins business award

27th March 2018

Responsible business management earns the Land Trust an enterprise accolade from High Sheriff of Cheshire.

The Land Trust has won a prestigious business award from the High Sheriff of Cheshire.

At the High Sheriff’s Awards for Enterprise, held at an Oscars-style black-tie dinner at Chester Racecourse on Thursday night (22 March 2018), the Land Trust bagged the Award for Responsible Business Practice.

Euan Hall, chief executive of the Land Trust, said: “It’s fantastic to have our work recognised by the Cheshire High Sheriff Awards. Well-managed green spaces are so important for public health and wellbeing, particularly in urban areas. Last year nearly 55,000 people joined in guided walks or took part in healthy activities on Land Trust country parks or estates, and we are hoping for even more this year. This award is a great endorsement for our community–focused approach to managing public land.”

The Land Trust maintains sites all over the country such as the Countess of Chester Country Park in Chester, Canvey Wick Nature Reserve in Essex and Wellesley Woodlands in Aldershot. The charity recently created Port Sunlight River Park in Wirral on the site of a former landfill and used research from Manchester Business School to demonstrate how the park’s creation had not only brought benefits to health and wellbeing, improving wildlife habitat and biodiversity, but had benefited the local economy to the tune of £86,000 a year in revenue to local business and adding almost £8 million to nearby house prices.
