BURTON BRADSTOCK COMMUNITY LAND TRUST – BUY A SHARE IN THE

FUTURE OF THE VILLAGE


The newly-formed Burton Bradstock Community Land Trust is urging local people to buy

£1 share and become a member of the community-led housing group.

A public meeting is being held in Burton Bradstock Village Hall on Thursday 6

December at 7.30pm when the share scheme will be launched.

The Burton Bradstock CLT has been registered as a Community Benefit Society and

has appointed a Board of six local residents to guide the Trust through its first six

months of operation.

The first projects include starting to search for sites for small developments of affordable

housing and to promote membership of the CLT to local people who are supportive of

providing affordable homes for people with a strong local connection.

The stated objectives of the new Community Land Trust include holding land in trust for

the community and providing housing for those in need as well as helping to improve

housing standards in the parish.


Chair of Burton Bradstock CLT David Dixon says: “More than 100 people attended our

first public meeting in the spring when we outlined what Community Land Trusts are all

about.

“Now that the Trust has been formed, we are moving on to the next steps, which include

finding sites within the village for affordable homes and building our membership among

local people.

“We are inviting anyone with an interest in the future of our village to the meeting on 6

December when there will be the chance to find out more and be among the first to take

up the £1 share offer.

“There will be seasonal refreshments too and the chance to chat to the CLT Steering

Group and Board members about how Community Land Trusts operate and our plans

for 2019.”
