In light of the COVID-19 crisis, the TCPA have decided to postponed our upcoming seminars and conferences. However, we’re hard at work to find alternative ways of bringing our content to you. In particular, we’re investing in webinar software to enable us to get our conference schedule back up and running as soon as possible! Related to this, we’re trying to see this as an opportunity to explore new ways of communicating about our work; from podcasts to online workshops. Please check this page regularly for updates on our events schedule.

Community ownership of land and the long-term stewardship of assets is one of the core Garden City principles. In recent years, many local authorities have made commitments to apply the principle of long-term stewardship to their new communities.

As local authorities and their private sector delivery partners are getting to grips to delivering stewardship models, key challenges have been identified around the details of finance, governance and community participation. Building upon previous practical guidance on long-term stewardship, the TCPA has taken a step further and explored the technical detail and challenges being faced by those forming models for long-term stewardship in new communities.

This seminar will explore emerging findings from this project and hear from those involved in delivering stewardship models.
