Advice for establishing and developing community land trusts

We can help you establish a community land trust and develop housing and other assets for the benefit of your community.

We have our own model rules for a community benefit society, which can be adapted for use by community land trusts ("CLTs") and are particularly suitable for those looking to raise finance via a community share issue.

Our community land trusts clients include:

  • Oxford Community Land Trust, Oxford
  • Leeds Community Homes, Leeds
  • Yorspace, York
  • Brighton and Hove Community Land Trust, Brighton
  • Tipi Valley CLT, Wales
  • Hay Habitat Limited, Manchester

We offer all new community-led housing groups a free initial meeting or telephone call, to help get you started. Please get in touch with our community-led housing team to arrange this.
