Cornwall Community Land Trust is hosting a seminar that brings together speakers to share their knowledge about community-led housing. The aim of the event is to demonstrate how communities can help meet the housing needs of local families by explaining how to go through the practical steps involved for a successful project in the community. 

National and local speakers will explain how to obtain the land, gain planning permission and finance necessary and explain how to legally lock in the homes for locals in perpetuity.

You don’t have to be a big developer.  Cornwall Community Land Trust, local CLTs and community groups around Cornwall have shown that “communities can do it for themselves”.

Our speakers include Cllr Andrew Mitchell – Homes Portfolio Holder, Cornwall Council; Catherine Harrington, Chief Executive of the National CLT Network; Amir Rizwan, Charities Aid Foundation Bank; Tamas Haydu, Cornwall Community Foundation; Coleen O'Sullivan, senior planner, Cornwall Council, as well as CCLT Development Manager, Helen Downing; and CCLT Director Andrew George. 

Directly following this event the National CLT Network will be hosting a Shape Our Future Regional Member Gathering. More details about the event here.
