How can I protect our outdoor recreational sites?

We protect land through Deeds of Dedication. It's a robust yet flexible way to do it. The Deeds (or Minutes of Agreement in Scotland) are a legally binding document which means each Field is protected for future generations to enjoy. 


How do I get a Deed of Dedication?

Only the landowner of a site can apply to protect it by contacting Fields in Trust. We have a regional team on hand for any questions you might have.

But this can be any landowner including sports clubs, private individuals and local authorities.

But I’m not a landowner! What can I do?

Why not write to your MP and ask them to look into FIT protection for your local parks and playgrounds?

Why not contact your local council to find out if they’ve heard about us?
