Transforming Derelict Land through Community-Led Models

Transforming Derelict Land through Community-Led Models

Kate Swade

This guide starts with an introduction to the benefits and challenges of reclaiming land, and then goes onto discuss the different models and approaches that communities could consider further when undertaking similar projects. The guide closes with a precis of two Our Place projects that demonstrate the opportunities associated with reclaiming land. Further resources
and links to other relevant examples are provided as an Appendix.

This guide should be of interest to both new and established community based organisations. It serves as an introduction to the subject and demonstrates how to bring communities together to take action to bring land back into productive use. The Our Place examples referred to also show how additional community benefits have been achieved as well as creating a better local
environment for everyone.
