What is a Community Land Trust (CLT) and how does it affect me?

As part of the strategic community plan for Parracombe we are setting up a Community Land Trust (CLT).  A CLT is a social enterprise set up to benefit a specific community by owning important local assets. Managed by a local elected board, a Community Land Trust’s protects a community’s assets such as affordable housing, village hall, community shop and other recreation facilities. It is most often created to help develop an affordable housing scheme, often in partnership with a housing association but can be created for any community initiative that needs to manage land assets.
