HARRY SWAIN ON THE LAND CONSERVANCY: ‘I’ve been a small donor and member in the past, but not anymore’

There has been quite a flood of defensive letters following your articles on The Land Conservancy.

Some make it sound like three directorial resignations following the pro-Turner slate victory last year is the whole story, but it isn’t.

Four lawyers and four other directors had resigned by March 2009.

Eight others and one honorary director stood up for change but were defeated in an election of the whole membership.

With the three recent resignations, that makes 20 knowledgeable, committed citizens who support the objectives of TLC but could not abide its management practices.

I’ve been a small donor and member in the past, but not any more. I want my environmental donations to make a permanent difference.

The high level of risk, both legal and financial, in TLC’s present style of management is inconsistent with the very idea of conservancy.
