Corfe Castle Community Land Trust – News Update September 2018
The Community Land Trust (CLT) held its first AGM at the Corfe Castle Club in August and members were updated on progress of the planned community affordable housing project.
At the AGM the Board was very disappointed to report that unfortunately, after so much hard work, the preferred site had been abandoned due to title issues. As a consequence, all feasibility studies have been suspended. However, with overwhelming support from the members, the Board will continue working with local landlords and the Purbeck District Council to identify other sites which might be suitable for a similar project.
Further updates will be published as matters progress.
The Corfe Castle Community Land Trust was formed with the principal aim of providing affordable homes within our village exclusively for families with longstanding links to our community who, because of escalating costs of housing in the village, are being obliged to find accommodation outside our community. We are keen for people who are supportive of this aim to join us. Membership forms are available both on the Corfe Castle Parish Council website and at the Village Stores.
Any further questions or comments should be directed to the CLT secretary, Alison Palmer on 01929 480096 or by email to [email protected].
