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.
