Emsworth Comunity Land Trust
Creating affordable homes and community spaces



The Emsworth Victoria Cottage Hospital site was part of the inspiration for starting the Community Land Trust in 2018. Those actively involved in Emsworth Community Land Trust want to find a way of ensuring that there are community facilities and new homes that will contribute positively to the wellbeing of local people. Community Land Trusts, of which there are more than 200 in the UK, can identify suitable sites and work with partners and the community to build truly affordable accommodation that meets local demand. Trusts can also build community and health-related facilities for the locality. The Emsworth CLT is currently looking at several sites in or near the town. 

There are many successful examples throughout the UK where communities have taken the lead on new affordable housing and community and health facilities through a Community Land Trust, and there is every reason to suppose that Emsworth could see similar success
