A Community Land Trust (CLT) is a community-led, not-for-profit, organisation that provides land and buildings to meet the long term needs of it's community.  It offers a way to provide permanently affordable housing, and holds these assets in trust, so the community benefits forever.  

The National CLT Network provides resources and advice on getting started.

Start up loan

A loan of up to £5,000 per CLT can be made available from the council to qualifying CLT's to cover the initial start up costs. The loan is available to emerging or established CLTs. The loan is intended to help with legal fees, surveys and employing architects.

If you would like to apply for a CLT start up loan please contact our housing development and enabling officer for an application form.
