Uniform Conservation Easement Act

The Uniform Conservation Act (the Act) is a model act upon which many states, including North Carolina, have based their own enabling laws for the establishment of state conservation easement programs. The Act was created and recommended for use by all states by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, a non-governmental body that drafts many forms of uniform laws for use by state and local governments. The Act enables the attachment of obligations and restrictions to real property to protect historic sites and natural resources. North Carolina's Conservation and Historic Preservation Agreement Act, N.C. GEN. STAT. 121-34 to 42 is based upon this Act and is included in the North Carolina Statutes and Acts section of this website. Included in this section is the Act and a discussion by the Commissioners of the uses and limitations of the Act.
