Land and Sky Press

Welcome to Land & Sky Press. We are a new publishing enterprise located at the Red Brick Building, part of the Beckery Island regeneration project. This area of peri-urban land sits halfway between Glastonbury (mystical and materialistic in equal measure) and Street, a former shoemaking town known more widely for its retail “village”. For over 150 years slippers and leather goods were made here. Our aim is to publish books that may also be of practical use …

The Rural Planning Handbook

is an essential tool for anyone:

’embarking on the perilous project of establishing an affordable rural home and livelihood in a country that prides itself in being in the vanguard of dysfunctional urban capitalism.’

The Rural Planning Handbook (ISBN 9781916491809) aims to provide a basic introduction to more or less everything that someone wanting to live a modest, sustainable, land-based existence in the English countryside might need to know about the planning system. It is designed to help small farmers, smallholders, forestry workers, permaculturists, low impact builders, caravan dwellers and low income people facing planning applications, appeals and enforcement on land in the countryside where they live or work.
