Conservation Land & Landed Charities

Conservation Land & Landed Charities


We act for charities of all sizes and types. They are as diverse as the needs they seek to address. Our advisors therefore tailor what are already broad and flexible services to suit their needs and nowhere more so than in the conservation sector.

The sector owns and manages properties from buildings and sites with heritage interests (whether homes or ancient monuments such as stone circles) through to those with moorland, mountains and lakes or saltmarsh and marginal urban areas.

They require innovative and practical ways of helping them whether in joint ventures with industry or other charities, securing funding or the ability to purchase or protect conservation interests.

Legislative changes point to concentration on financial support in the agricultural sector for environmental projects and to those improving and protecting “Natural Capital” - the combination of renewable resources ( e.g. air, water, soil, plants and animals ) which combine to benefit people, whether physically or mentally. This land and the charities involved in the sector will underpin the implementation of this strategic change.

Hewitsons have been acting for charities and other owners involved in conservation ownership and management, for over thirty years. We have a large team experienced in dealing with the agreements for management, cultivation and use of this land, and the often unusual and rare property types with which they are involved.
