Local Trust’s partnership with Shared Assets brings expertise in new models of land management that are financially sustainable and create livelihoods and shared public spaces in Big Local areas.
The partnership will provide advice, support and opportunities for knowledge-sharing to people from Big Local areas who want to transform land, that may be neglected or underused, into useful and productive spaces that support livelihoods and bring important benefits to the community.
Big Local areas have shown huge ambition for land management to form part of the legacy and on-going sustainability of projects. With Shared Assets Big Locals are exploring where the opportunities are, what challenges exist and what support might help take some of their ideas to the next level.
Shared Assets is currently working on land based projects with:
- Par Bay Big Local
- North Cleethorpes Big Local
- Leecliffe Big Local
- Clubmoor Big Local
- Gateshead Big Local
- Identifying land and carrying out a feasibility study for a BMX track.
- Identifying space for a community garden and supporting development
- A large scale social investment project to either build or modernise a structure, which could be turned into social housing and business incubator hubs.
