Supporting protected green space

At Fields in Trust we protect green spaces for good and support local landowners, community groups and park users to achieve this.

All the parks and green spaces protected with Fields in Trust are locally managed, but we have a responsibility to ensure any changes regarding land ownership, land transactions, erection of buildings and structures continue to meet the purpose of the site and benefit its recreational use. Consent requirements vary according to the legal agreements in place. To maintain our obligations to legally protected parks and green spaces we operate a comprehensive Field Change Request process.

We also offer the following support to landowners
  • A comprehensive online Knowledge Base on all issues relating to the protection and management of parks and green spaces
  • Advice and support for individuals and community groups to campaign to protect their parks and green spaces
  • Advice and support for Friends Groups and other volunteers in parks and green spaces to assist this valuable network
