Whole Estate Plan

Whole Estate Plan

Whole Estate Plans are a document prepared by individual landowning organisations.

They set out the assets of the organisation and the opportunities and threats which the organisation may encounter, and describes their plans for the future.

A Whole Estate Plan should include environmental and social assets and issues as well as economic development projects.

The concept is to encourage open dialogue between land owning organisations and the National Park, to look at land holdings in their entirety in order to be as holistic as possible.

The intention is to provide clear baseline information which can then be used to identify opportunities and aid decision making for both land owners and the National Park Authority.

Whole Estate Plans should help to identify mutually acceptable and proactive solutions which serve the wider purposes of the National Park.
