The first public drop-in sessions for people interested in understanding what a community land trust (CLT) can do for the parish of Seend, will be held on March 22nd and 24th.
Seend’s parishioners will have the opportunity to join the newly-forming Seend CLT and the growing movement of 230 CLTs already launched across England.
Half of the 230 CLTs have been set up in the last two years and the empowering movement continues to grow, with more than 5,000 homes in the pipeline.
“Seend Community Land and Asset Trust (Seend CLT) is a locally powered initiative, supported by government through the National Community Land Trust Network,” explains the group. “The Seend CLT enables parishioners to access affordable housing and develop, preserve and care for local assets for their benefit in perpetuity. All Seend parishioners over the age of 16 years may be members.
“It is altruistic in nature, run by Trustees (when established) and powered by the people of Seend for the people of Seend.”
The event is organised by
the Seend Community Land and Asset Trust Steering Group. The drop-in sessions will be held in the Irene Usher Memorial Pavilion, Rusty Lane, Seend from 4.00pm to 7.00pm on Thursday 22nd March and from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm on Saturday 24th March. For more details, visit www.seendclt.org
