Land Business Insights: The estate of the future
Predicting the future is tricky, but with the rural sector facing a period of unprecedented change it has never been more important to stay on top of new trends and developments in policy and regulation. Land managers are facing a complex, interconnected set of factors which have the potential to profoundly influence how we approach rural land and property management.
Our new report on The estate of the future examines what this means in terms of the challenges and opportunities facing estate owners and how businesses can build resilience and spread risk. It explores where there might be openings to generate new income streams – particularly by growing profits from diversification and environmental management.
We also appreciate there is often no better way to spark new ideas than by drawing on the knowledge and experience of others in a similar position. So we have asked a range of progressive estate and farm owners to share how they are future-proofing their businesses. The path that each estate takes over the coming years will be individual, but we hope you find their stories as inspiring as we do.
Our publication covers:
- The challenge of building resilience within a rural estate
- An introduction to the concept of rural placemaking
- Five case-studies of landowners who are focusing on new market opportunities or embracing fresh ideas as part of their approach to land ownership
We strongly believe that rural estates have a vibrant future, with huge potential for land-based businesses to contribute greatly to the economy, environment and society. However, navigating the changes that lie ahead will require innovative thinking and a proactive approach. Here at Strutt & Parker we are here to help you on that journey, working alongside you to evaluate your options and turn plans into action. Please do get in touch if you would like to talk about any aspect of the contents.
