Copies of the three volumes of case studies of SOCIAL LANDOWNERSHIP are now available free to self-help groups, for the cost of post and packaging.

contact details

The volumes were compiled and edited by Graham Boyd and David Reid, and published jointly by the Not-for-Profit Landowners Project Group and Community Learning Scotland in 1999, 2000 and 2001

Each volume contains a foreword, introduction, eight case studies and contact details. The 24 case studies cover a wide variety of projects, large and small, mostly from the north of Scotland. They include community woodland projects, agricultural and horticultural co-operatives, forestry partnerships, regeneration projects, and conservation initiatives, initiated by community groups, conservation organisations, community-public sector partnerships and in some cases by pioneering individuals. The studies reflect the diversity of the not-for-profit land sector, but are linked by a common theme of managing land and resources in ways, which improve the long-term welfare of local communities. Each case study was written by an individual closely involved with the project and able to identify both the major obstacles and the key factors in overcoming these.
