Community Land Trusts (CLTs) are a way for people from a village, neighbourhood, town or city to get together and create a non-profit organisation for the good of their community. Run completely by volunteers, a CLT strives to meet the long-term needs of its community by acquiring assets, for example building permanently affordable housing or workspaces, or acquiring the local pub, library or shop. These then stay owned by the CLT organisation forever.
Why did we form a CLT ?
CLTs help local organisations and people like you with important issues in your area :–
CLTs provide homes for people with strong local connections to their community, at levels that are genuinely affordable.
CLTs don’t just build houses, they can provide other assets for the community. This could include workspaces, recreational facilities, a shop, cafe or pub or anything that the community needs!
Homes and any other community assets are secured in perpetuity via a statutory asset lock. As such, CLT homes also fall outside the scope of the Right to Buy.
Ultimately, CLTs allow communities to take back control over the future development of their local area, and provide the homes and amenities that they want.
