Community Land Trust (Sub-Committee)

Committee Responsibilities

The Town Council has an opportunity to set up a Community Land Trust, which will be discussed by town councillors via the Community Land Trust Sub-Committee/Working Group.

A CLT is a not for profit social enterprise set up to benefit a specific community through the ownership of important local assets:

“Community Land Trusts are a form of community-led housing, set up and run by ordinary people to develop and manage homes as well as other assets. CLTs act as long-term stewards of housing, ensuring that it remains genuinely affordable, based on what people actually earn in their area, not just for now but for every future occupier.”
