Getting better information to common good land users

Reports & Research
August, 2016
United Kingdom, Global

Quality information on land is crucial to making good decisions about it. Increasing access to this information is important, and it is particularly vital to get it to groups who focus on social and environmental missions. This report is about the information needs of these ‘common good land users’, the data that is available, and how to get it to them. It’s based on a series of interviews with common good land users, data producers, and other experts. We also explored the data, and tested some approaches to making it accessible at a ‘DataDive’ we ran with volunteer data scientists.

How social enterprises can help local authorities make the most of their land

Reports & Research
July, 2016
United Kingdom

Shared Assets works with landowners and social and community enterprises to develop innovative ways of managing land for the common good, be it parks, farmland, woodlands, waterways, or other spaces. We also look for ways to create an environment that allows these models to thrive. One issue that comes up repeatedly is the crucial role of local authorities, both as landowners and commissioners of land-based services.

What is standing in the way of new models of common good land use?

Reports & Research
September, 2015
United Kingdom

At Shared Assets we believe that land is a common resource and that it should be made to work for everyone. This means using land to generate social, environmental, and economic value. Mainstream models of land management often fail to deliver social and environmental value, whilst many also require subsidies to be profitable. We need new models of land management, and we believe land-based social enterprises can deliver them.
