Corfe Castle Community Land Trust February 2018 Update
It was with great sorrow that we learned of the sudden death of Patricia White, one of our board members, in January. We are very grateful for the support she had given and wished to continue to give to our project; she will be much missed.
The board of CCCLT is very pleased to have received a grant from Purbeck District Council which has enabled us, following a selection and tender process, to appoint an architect (Etchingham Morris) and pay for the necessary site feasibility studies. This will take us up to the planning application phase following which, if successful, we will be able to hand the project over to a housing developer. They will take the project to completion but with continuous oversight and involvement from our board.
With support and advice from Wessex CLT we have appointed the affordable housing developer Aster. They have a local office in Wareham and a track record in building several similar projects as well as experience owning and running property in Corfe Castle and the wider area.
A public meeting will be held in due course to give villagers information about the project plans and to invite comments that will help guide the final designs.
