E. Enforcement of Conservation Agreements

The land trust has a written policy and/or procedure detailing how it will respond to potential violations of a conservation agreement, including the role of all parties involved (such as board members, volunteers, staff and partners) in any enforcement action. Policies and procedures should ensure that all discussions and actions taken are recorded and that all copies of correspondence and documents are retained and kept in a safe location. The land trust takes necessary and consistent steps to see that violations are resolved and has available, or has a strategy to secure, the financial and legal resources for enforcement and defence.
