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: Llangollen Community Garden

This organic food-growing community garden, based on the site of an abandoned plot in Llangollen, is owned by Denbighshire County Council which gave permission for the development of community growing in 2012. It’s an excellent example of the process of setting up a community garden on a council site, with a licence rather than a lease.

Catherine Veasey, who has been involved in the development of the garden through the local Friends Of The Earth group, describes more about the garden and how it worked with the council.
