Community Land Trusts

Community owned affordable housing

Community Land Trusts (CLTs) are set up as a local response to the need for affordable homes for local people. They are however, about more than just bricks and mortar, they are about communities and sustainability.

CLTs are ideally placed to identify land which can be brought forward for housing that may not normally be made available. However, CLT’s often rely on land being gifted or being acquired at significantly below market value in order for it to be deliverable. The cost of the land, infrastructure and professionals often prohibitive and that is where we can help.

CLT’s can “piggy-back” on to rural sites being brought forward so the cost of the infrastructure is borne/subsidised by the open market housing on the site. This allows CLT’s to be provided with a serviced site complete with infrastructure and statutory services already installed, reducing the risk of delivery substantially.

We can assist with taking a phased approach to delivery spreading the total number of homes over 15/20 years to create some certainty in terms of development into the future.
