What is a Community Land Trust?

Community Land Trusts (CLTs) are local organisations set up and run by ordinary people to develop and manage homes as well as other assets important to that community, like community enterprises, food production or workspaces. The CLT’s main task is to make sure homes are genuinely affordable, based on what people actually earn in their area, not just for now but for every future occupier.

Buying from the CLT was the only form of ownership we could afford. The size, quality and

affordability has completely changed our lives for the better.”
