About Community Land Trusts
Learn more about CLTs
Community Land Trusts – or CLTs – give ordinary people the means to steward land for local wellbeing; developing and managing homes and other assets important to their local community.
... about COMMUNITY
CLTs are organised around a place, and anyone who lives or works there can join and participate, democratically
... ABOUT LAND
CLTs take ownership of land, removing it from the market place and stewarding it on behalf of the local community
... ABOUT TRUST
CLTs prioritise the wellbeing of the local community, safeguarding purposes like permanently affordable housing or the preservation of natural habitats
More than housing. In England and Wales, many CLTs are concerned with affordable homes. But the CLT model can also be used to safeguard assets valuable to the community like community enterprises, food growing or workspaces. Or to steward large areas of common or public land.
Growing and here to stay. The number of CLTs has been growing exponentially for a decade. They act as long-term stewards of community assets, ensuring that they remain genuinely affordable for local people, not just for now but for every future occupier.
