Emsworth Comunity Land Trust
Creating affordable homes and community spaces



Community Land Trusts (CLTs) help the community take forward beneficial development opportunities. As a CLT all our activities will be focused on the social, economic and environmental interests of the people of Emsworth.

We aim:
• to take the lead on some environmentally sustainable and affordable homes
• to promote and develop community-led initiatives including work to help Emsworth's centre thrive and projects to improve provision for young people
• to seek advice and training as well as grants and investment to help meet these objectives
• to work in partnership with the community, local groups, the council, housing experts and others aligned with the aims of ECLT 

The next steps to achieving these aims:
We believe that involving those who live locally as much as possible will help to move the ECLT aims forward. We have held one public meeting (March 2019) and gained valuable feedback. There will also be a housing and community survey carried out before the end of 2019. We are assisted by a team of local volunteers whose work is much appreciated
Havant Borough Council has provided funding from the national Community Housing Fund to help set up the CLT and also to enable hiring in professional experts and undertaking surveys etc The CLT appreciates this grant as well those received from the national CLT Network and Emsworth Residents’ Association.
