The Land Trust seeks partner to manage South Yorkshire parks

15th September 2015

National land management charity the Land Trust is looking to hear from organisations that would be interested in managing their South Yorkshire portfolio of parks and woodlands, whilst helping to deliver charitable objectives.

The charity which owns and manages more than 50 parks across the UK, is currently retendering the contract to manage part of its portfolio in South Yorkshire. The nine sites, totalling 500 hectares, include a number that have been transformed from former collieries into country parks and community woodlands.

Alan Carter, Portfolio Manager of the Land Trust, said “This is an exciting opportunity for environmental and land management organisations, who share our vision, to work with us to manage these community green spaces and deliver benefits for the local community and environment.”

He continued “From October 2016, we are looking to enter into a ten year Management Agreement, worth over £400,000 per annum. However, we would welcome discussions with organisations that would want to take on the whole portfolio as well as those that would only want to manage selected sites or take a partnership approach.”

The sites included in this retender opportunity include: Barton Lane; Bentley Country Park; Brodsworth Country Park; Cudworth Common; Dinnington Country Park; Kiveton Country Park; New Park Springs Country Park; Phoenix Park and Warren House Park in Askern.

Expressions of Interest need to be submitted to the Land Trust by 12 noon on Thursday 15 October 2015. Further details can be obtained at or by calling 01925 852005.
