Marshwood Community Land Trust was created out of a project to build affordable housing in the village of Marshwood in West Dorset.
Initially concentrating on providing affordable housing for local people the future of the CLT is in the hands of its membership and it could be a vehicle for other projects in years to come.
Who is eligible to join?
CLT membership is open to those who support the CLTs objectives.
Community Land Trust as defined by the National CLT Network.
Community Land Trusts are powerful examples of communities taking control and transforming the future of their local community. They are non-profit, community-based organisations run by volunteers that develop housing, workspaces, community facilities or other assets that meet the needs of the community, are owned and controlled by the community and are made available at permanently affordable levels.
