Golden rules of land management – what are they?24/02/20
We help our clients manage a diverse array of land, as part of our Estate and Property Management service. We advise and instruct on diverse portfolios and we have particular expertise in managing the challenges of rural locations.
Managing the essentials
Land management is needed by landowners who oversee all sorts of land areas and types. It has many different disciplines and is the process of managing the use, maintenance and development of both rural and urban spaces. Land is one of our most important natural resources, which can be used for a variety of purposes, both commercial and non-commercial. These can include agriculture, reforestation, water resource management and even eco-tourism. Most of the private land in the UK is used for agriculture of one description or another, from growing crops to rearing livestock.
The challenges facing farmers, estate managers and landowners are very different from those faced by previous generations. Increasingly, diversification is leading landowners to become more imaginative and inventive when it comes to making the most of their assets. Conversely, land that is being overused or misused can degrade the value and quality of the land over time, so use must be monitored and regulated to retain the asset’s worth.
Landing the right partner
At Forge Property Consultants, we can advise clients on how to get the most out of their land and how best to manage their assets. As a physical asset, land has a great deal of potential which should be maximised. One of the golden rules of land management is to make sure that your land works for you. We can offer impartial advice on a wide range of subjects, to help you make the right choices and decisions. Using a company with local knowledge can be highly beneficial when choosing who to manage an estate. Our offices are positioned on the England-Wales border, and we have a solid grounding in the various laws of the land and legislation in both countries, as well as the opportunities available.
Our experienced team of rural surveyors are knowledgeable on rural matters and can answer any queries about such subjects as strategic estate planning, estate management, land law and covenants, diversification of land use, land grants and subsidies, and regulatory compliance. Our service can be tailored to your requirements – in this way we service a wide variety of clients, both across the region and further afield.
Knowing the lie of the land when it comes to making the most out of your estate – whether it’s for personal fulfilment or business success – can pay dividends in the future.
