Leases: Heads of Terms Template (England & Wales)

Lease requirements (also known as ‘Heads of Terms’) are the foundations of any property contract. The Lease Requirements/Heads of Terms document is a record of decisions that have been agreed between the parties (landlord and community group) and can be used to draw up a lease or other such document that reflects the decisions made. It is also a useful tool to focus your ideas on how the project will function.

Case Study: Wild Elements

Wild Elements is a social enterprise based in North Wales, dedicated to getting people outdoors and closer to nature in a fun way, through forest schools and outdoor play schemes and community projects and events. It was set up by Thomas Cockbill and Resi Tomat in March 2013. They had previously been working for the National Trust at Penrhyn Castle, near Bangor, Gwynedd, carrying out education activities. When that project finished, they could see a need for nature-based play services in the local area.

Case Study: Llanberis Community Orchard

The idea for a community orchard in Llanberis had been developing in a few people’s minds and came to fruition during a Youth Hostel Association (YHA) open day in September 2014. The YHA Snowdon Llanberis manager, Janet Walker, suggested that an outdoor space at the Youth Hostel would make an excellent site. The space is an existing orchard with several old apple and damson trees, which had received no attention for many years.

Pros and Cons of taking on extra land

Successful groups who have done a good job with a project frequently find that they are offered additional sites to work their magic on.  We often find that these groups feel obliged to say yes to the extra land but with hindsight they wished they had said no!

The aim of this guidance is to support you through this decision process, giving you points to consider so you can decide whether  your group should say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to taking on extra land.
