How a Community Land Trust Works

Affordable Housing for the Midhurst Area

A community land trust (CLT) is a non-profit community-led organisation that develops and stewards affordable housing and other assets that meet the needs of a community.

There are now over 250 Community Land Trusts in England and Wales, and including new groups forming the number is over 300. The sector has grown six-fold in the last six years and 935 CLT homes have been built to date with more than 16,000 community led homes in the pipeline. Over 17,000 people in England and Wales are members of CLTs.
