How we make decisions about land is at the root of everything – housing, food and farming, infrastructure and climate change. Despite this, it is rarely addressed in public policy.
We want to see the impacts of how we own, value, tax and access land recognised and reflected in public policy at a local and national level. We are also seeking an approach to land-related policy making that puts social, economic and environmental justice at its core.
Much of our research work results in policy recommendations e.g., around planning, development, greenbelt issues, public parks, agriculture and woodland management. We have also been involved in pioneering policy experiments such as the Liverpool City Region Land Commission. We are particularly interested in the role of local authorities and how local land use policies – particularly with respect to public land – could support them to create resilient local land economies in their areas.
We’re a small organisation with big ambitions! We are grateful for all support people feel able to offer us.
