The CLA is the membership organisation for owners of land, property and businesses in rural England and Wales.
They have been safeguarding the interests of landowners, and those with an economic, social and environmental interest in rural land for more than 100 years. They achieve their goals by being professional, relevant and forward-looking, and their successes in key areas give members the security and certainty to invest in their land and business.
CLA members own or manage around half the rural land in England and Wales and more than 250 different types of businesses. The work they undertake in the best interests of the land has a positive effect on wildlife and the natural environment, and their diverse and successful businesses are the heart of rural communities.
