About us

The Land is written by and for people who believe that the roots of justice, freedom, social security and democracy lie not so much in access to money, or to the ballot box, as in access to land and its resources.

The Land reflects the preoccupations of two previous publications: The Land Is Ours Newsletter, which for nine years informed people about land campaigns in the UK and abroad, and Chapter 7 News, which since 1999 has published news and views about the UK planning system.

The views expressed in The Land do not necessarily represent those of The Land Is Ours, Chapter 7, or the editors. We encourage debate and will consider for publication any material submitted relating to the politics of land, provided it is not racist, sexist or similarly inflammatory. However, editorial policy reflects the basic objective of The Land Is Ours—which is to "campaign peacefully for access to land, its resources and the decision-making processes affecting them, for everyone, irrespective of race, creed, age or gender."

Advertising

We do not take paid advertising, but will, at our discretion, take advertisements or announcements for land projects, people seeking land-based opportunities, and associated campaigns, publications or events.
