The Land Trust is a charity that is committed to the long term sustainable management of open space for community benefit.
Our vision is to improve the quality of people’s lives by creating sustainable, high quality green spaces that deliver environmental, social and economic benefits.
We are passionate about identifying cost effective solutions to deliver high quality and sustainably maintained open space.
We work with land owners who, for a variety of reasons, want to pass on responsibility (and often liability) for the management of an area of land. Ahead of taking responsibility and ‘ownership’ we will identify and secure appropriate long-term funding (often in perpetuity) and management regimes, ensuring that the site has a sustainable future as green open space and crucially that it delivers against our charitable objectives.
We now have ownership or long term management responsibility for over 2,000 ha of land with more than 50 spaces across England and are currently working on taking our first sites in Scotland.
It is a privilege to work for an organisation that puts communities at the heart of its work. The knowledge that I am helping to provide a better environment, especially in areas where open green space is in short supply, is what motivates and inspires me.
