Loading Events

9th May : 10:00 am 11:30 am

Long-term stewardship is an approach to delivering and managing places that can ensure new communities are places which enable people and the environment to flourish, in perpetuity. It is one of the core Garden City Principles and the right approach provides an opportunity to create places which people will be proud to live in for years to come. The TCPA is holding a 2-part webinar series in partnership with Pinsent Masons, on some of the technical aspects of stewardship approaches; on governance structures and income streams/ for stewardship vehicles.  

Choosing the right approach to stewardship in your development includes consideration of the right stewardship organisation or ‘vehicle’. There are a variety of different legal and financial structures available, each with different remits, responsibilities, and governance structures.  

Putting in place the right governance structure for your stewardship vehicle is essential for successful stewardship. Successful models can act on behalf of a growing community and engage new residents in shaping local decision-making and community development. Getting it right means ensuring that there is representation for local residents, councils and other stakeholders. It means considering how they are elected, what their roles are, and how governance structures and activities are communicated to residents and other stakeholders.  

Join us for the first in a two-part series on stewardship vehicles in new communities. In this session we will explore why governance is important, how it relates to your wider stewardship strategy, and some of the different models available. We will draw on emerging experiences from local authorities and the private sector who are setting out ambitious plans for stewardship in their developments.
