Access To Land

United Kingdom
Fresh Start Land Enterprise Centre CIC

We encourage new thinking among land and business entrepreneurs by stimulating the uptake of training, the development of management and marketing skills and innovative ways of working together.

We achieve this by a combined approach through key areas of delivery:
• Land Partnerships - innovation with land agreements including joint ventures via a handbook and workshops.
• Land matchmaking - we are preparing to run a pilot scheme for matching landowners and entrepreneurs for winter 2015/2016.
• Business academies - for those starting up or looking to expand or diversify a business.
• Mentoring - providing training and business mentors to people who attend our other schemes.
