A CLT is a way of owning land and other assets for the community. Trustees manage these assets on behalf of the community. Members of the community can become shareholders and often do. CLTs can and do own all sorts of things. Some own pubs, playgrounds or fibre networks. More commonly they own land and housing which is occupied by members of the community on an affordable basis.
In May 2021, BNCLT Members voted in the first Election of Trustees since the CLT was incorporated at the end of October 2020. Between November 2020 and the May Election the CLT was managed by the ‘Subscribing Members’ (founding members), four of whom stood for election and are now Elected Trustees. The rules governing election of BNCLT Trustees are covered fully in the BNCLT rules in the member’s area. Profiles of the current Trustees can be found on the ‘Meet the Trustees Page’, see the main menu on the home page.
Land suitable for housing is in short supply in rural areas and the targets from central Government to build houses are therefore hard to meet. So every 5-7 years the Local Authority (East Devon District Council in our case) will commission a HELAA , or an invitation for landowners to submit land parcels for scrutiny, these are then ranked by the Local Authority against certain criteria for their suitability as housing development sites. The top ranking sites in an area are most likely to gain planning permission if a developer should apply.The last HELAA was undertaken at the beginning of 2021, at this time we are awaiting the results.
