Gifts in Wills

 

Help to keep the Cotswolds special

When you leave a gift in your Will to CNL*, it’ll help ensure that we can continue to keep the Cotswolds a special place; to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the Cotswolds; to increase understanding and enjoyment of its special qualities; and to foster the social and economic well-being of local communities.

How to leave your legacy

The Cotswolds National Landscape is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, looked after by a small team working in partnership with a number of other organisations.

If you would like to leave a gift in your Will to help with our endeavours, we strongly recommend you that you speak to a solicitor to ensure that your wishes will be carried out as you intend.

You will need to take the following details with you:

  • Cotswolds Conservation Board
  • Registered address: The Old Prison, Fosse Way, Northleach, Gloucestershire GL54 3JH

An example of wording you could use:

I leave my / X share (s) of my residuary estate for Cotswolds Conservation Board, The Old Prison, Northleach, Gloucestershire, GL54 3JH, absolutely for its general purposes and I declare that the receipt of the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors.

Cotswolds National Landscape

*Cotswolds National Landscape is the new name for the Cotswolds Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The new name takes forward one of the proposals of the Government-commissioned ‘Landscapes Review’ to rename AONBs as ‘National Landscapes’. This change reflects the national importance of AONBs and the fact that they are safeguarded, in the national interest, for nature, people, business and culture.

Cotswolds National Landscape and Cotswolds Conservation Board are the trading names of the Conservation Board for the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Cotswolds Conservation Board is an independent statutory body established by Parliamentary Order in 2004.   We are not a registered charity.
