St Clements – innovative London CLT development

July 2017

Wrigleys has been involved in this ground-breaking scheme to ensure perpetually affordable accommodation for individuals meeting certain criteria.

This complex scheme hinges on the involvement of London Community Land Trust and links the price of flats to local income. 

Wrigleys and Ecology Building Society have been working closely with the CLT's members to move them into their new build flats as they are released by the developer.

The first sale to a CLT member completed on 2 June and the second tranche of properties are coming on stream now (June 2017).
