Leases: Rent Survey

CLAS has surveyed a random sample of community gardens about their land agreements and what rent they pay. The projects surveyed are diverse in scale, purpose and location. Some are trading, others are social; some are informal and others are incorporated. The landlords are also varied. Some are local authorities, others are private. Some land is rural, some urban. The rents paid vary from zero to over a thousand pounds.

Obviously rental amounts vary enormously and are based on each individual circumstance, but examples may be useful as a starting point for discussion.

Leases: Meanwhile Leases

The Meanwhile Project, a partnership with Locality that has now unfortunately ended, promoted the temporary use of land for gardening and food growing as well as the use of vacant shops, offices and warehouses for “pop-up” enterprises.  The project developed a number of 'meanwhile leases'. Although these were called “meanwhile” they are actually suitable for more permanent occupation from 1 year to 99+years.
