Owning and managing land
Are you managing land or a local asset? Or have you thought about the opportunity?

Shared Assets will be working with Local Trust over the coming months to explore opportunities for Big Local areas in land and asset management.

We know there is ambition in some Big Local areas for land management to form part of the legacy and on-going sustainability of projects. We are exploring where the opportunities are, what challenges exist and what support might help accelerate some of your ideas to the next level.

To do this we are initially be carrying out research in the form of this survey and telephone interviews. This will lead to a learning and networking event at the end of November where we will show our findings, look to support network building among peers and inspire groups to think more ambitiously about the role of land projects in creating a legacy for their Big Local grants. sign up here; https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/owning-and-managing-land-tickets-38272394763

If you are able to give 10 minutes of your time to answer these questions it will really help us to build a programme that will be useful for you.

Later in the year Local Trust will be launching an open call for Big Local groups who would like a support package from Shared Assets, which will be paid for in part by the Big Local area but will be match funded by Local Trust.

If you want to ask more about the research please contact; hannah@sharedassets.org.uk

All data will be held securely within Shared Assets systems, although email addresses may be shared with Local Trust.
Any information quoted in reporting will be unidentifiable unless prior consent is obtained from the individual.
