CLT Network

United Kingdom
Community Land Trust

This organization aims to acquire and manage land, so that the local community can enjoy social, economic and environmental benefits. It works as a tripartite system: on the one hand there are the CLT housing owners, on the other hand, the entities from the third sector and public administration, and finally the local community.

Impact indicators
  • Housing. It supports permanent accessible housing. It manages organized resident groups, helping to assure more financial resources.
  • Community space. It acquires and develops empty spaces such as parks, gardens and recreational public centres for social and health services or working entertainment.
  • Employment. It generates employment by making spaces accessible to small companies and non-profit organisations, as well as little businesses and projects that work with local residents.
  • Rights for a city for everyone. It allows people to choose how they want to use the resources and how to develop their neighbourhoods through a democratic process where community members and the local government take decisions based on common interest.
  • Justice and environmental quality. It cleans toxic spaces and restores properties.
