Trosolwg o Brydlesau

Llongyfarchiadau os ydych chi wedi cyrraedd y cam hwn; gobeithio eich bod chi naill ai wedi dod o hyd i ddarn o dir addas neu grŵp addas sydd eisiau defnyddio eich tir, ac rydych chi nawr eisiau gwybod sut mae dechrau defnyddio’r tir. Cynlluniwyd y cyflwyniad hwn i brydlesau i helpu’r perchennog tir a/neu’r grŵp cymunedol, i gytuno ar rai amodau ar gyfer defnyddio’r tir, sy’n dderbyniol i’r perchennog tir a’r sawl sy’n defnyddio’r tir.  Gall fod gennych yr opsiwn a’r gallu i werthu/prynu safle ond, os nad oes, rydym yn argymell eich bod chi’n cytuno ar brydles.

Gwneud Cais am Grantiau ar Dir wedi’i Rentu

Mae’r ddogfen hon yn rhoi arweiniad ar wneud cais am grantiau pan mae grŵp tyfu cymunedol yn gweithredu ar dir wedi’i rentu. Mae’n ymdrin â grantiau ar gyfer grwpiau cymunedol, nid grantiau ffermydd (Stiwardiaeth, y Taliad Sengl a.y.y.b.). Gall cymhwyster ar gyfer grant ddibynnu ar brofi pa mor hir fydd y grŵp ar y tir/safle, gan fod arianwyr yn aml eisiau gwneud yn siwr y bydd y prosiect yn rhedeg yn ddigon hir i gael y budd mwyaf o’r grant.

Overview: Rent

When land is going to be taken on for a community gardening project or any other food-growing project, it is usual to have a discussion about rent. Due to the unique nature of community growing sites, it is very difficult to give guidance on a typical rent (price per acre). CLAS did a survey and found groups paying between zero and £1,000 per acre.

This paper will help you calculate what rent should be paid. It can also be used to quantify the value to the project of rent-free (zero rent) or a rent paid in kind.

Applying for grants on rented land

Cymraeg

This document provides guidance on applying for grants when a project operates on rented land. It deals with grants for community groups, not farm grants (Stewardship, Single Farm Payment etc). Eligibility for a grant may depend on proving how long the group has the land for, as funders often want to make sure that the project will be around long enough to get the maximum benefit from the grant.

Case Study: London Road Community Garden, Brighton

This short case study highlights an example of community growing on railway land, including stations and marginal land next to tracks. Groups that work on railway land need to go through a process to ensure the work is safe and they often require raised beds to avoid risk of contaminated ground. Network Rail owns all railway land but most land at stations is leased to train operators, who often have ‘Adopt a Station’ schemes.

How To Register A Lease

The Land Registry records all the rights relating to a property, for example, who the owner is, if there is a tenant, what the boundaries of the property are and if anyone else can use the land to access their land. When you buy or take a long lease of property, it needs to be registered with the Land Registry. It is extremely important to correctly and accurately complete the registration form (and send the correct accompanying documents), as it is the entry of a person’s name on the register that confirms him/her as the owner of that land under the registry system.
