How can I protect our parks and green spaces?

We protect land through a Deed of Dedication. It's a robust yet flexible way to do it. The Deed (or Minute of Agreement in Scotland) is a legally binding document which means each site is protected for future generations to enjoy.

How do I get a Deed of Dedication?

Only the landowner can apply to protect a space by contacting Fields in Trust. This can be any landowner including sports clubs, private individuals and local authorities. We have a regional team on hand for any questions you might have.

Protection Application Pack

To nominate a park or green space for protection simply download our application form, complete and email it to us at or you can call us on 020 7427 2110 for further information. Protecting your space with us means it will be safe forever.

I'm not a landowner, what can I do?

Contact your elected representatives and ask them to protect your local parks and green spaces with Fields in Trust.
