Ridgefields Ecological Land Partnerships
Ridgefields Ecological Land Partnerships Community Interest Company aims to support new and evolving community initiatives and social enterprises to access land in support of their endeavours. We do this through the purchase of land, to be held by the CiC and leased out at a nominal rate. Our key objective is to offer support to initiatives that demonstrate generation of community benefits with land stewardship that embeds sound environmental management. We also welcome opportunities to work with other land owning organisations that have comparable aims.
The CiC welcomes requests from across the UK.
Applicants will need to show how their proposal will offer both public access and will enhance community wellbeing. They will also need to provide an outline as to how their land management proposals will be of ecological and environmental benefit. It is expected that all land will have an agreed management / development plan.
The CiC will cover all the costs of purchase and will lease the land to a suitable body on pre-agreed terms. A nominal fee will be charged to cover annual administrative and other costs.
