Planning: Planning Policy & Community Growing

Sustain have produced a special guide to using planning policy to meet strategic objectives through community food growing.

The guide brings together examples of planning policies around the UK that support community food growing. It is aimed primarily at planning authorities to help them to use food growing as a way of creating healthy communities. 

This is a specific recommendation within the Planning Practice Guidance that goes with the National Planning Policy Framework for England, but a principle that is relevant across the UK.

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.

Valuing Grasslands - Environmental Impact Assessment

Community gardens value their local natural environments and are keen to look after native ecosystems. However, some may overlook the habitat value of grassland.

While grassland may not always look appealing or exciting, some areas contain very active and precious ecosystems which should not be disturbed. For example, they may contain wildflowers that are becoming rarer and support a wide range of insects, mammals and birds of prey that feed on them.
