Community Land Trust

The need for affordable homes for local people was recognised in the Parish Plan of 2012 and the Parish Council has played a central role in facilitating discussions with members of the community to look at ways to deliver this. After a number of public meetings and with the support of Wessex Community Land Trust Project, the Broadwindsor Group Parish Community Land Trust (CLT) was established in May 2016. The aim of the CLT is to provide a small development of affordable housing for rent to people with a direct connection to the villages within the Grouped Parish area.
