Land Trust, Perceptions Survey and Social Value Study

The Land Trust is dedicated to providing free public open space for the benefit of communities. In order to better understand its impact the Land Trust commissioned Carney Green to undertake a social value assessment of the Land Trust’s sites. For this to be achieved, visitors on 12 sites were surveyed and Carney Green applied financial proxies to the survey outputs to calculate monetary benefits for health provision, crime prevention and social amenity value.

We then applied these benefits to the costs of running Land Trust sites to provide the social value ratio of £X benefit (or saving to the public purse) for every £1 spent. This information  ( will be used by the Land Trust for future promotional activity and to support funding bids.
