We have explored ways to deliver housing in areas of high pressure to increase the supply of affordable housing. To help us deal with this issue, we committed in One Wales to promote the expansion of Community Land Trusts throughout Wales.

A Community Land Trust (CLT) is a non-for-profit, community-controlled organisation that owns, develops and manages local assets for the benefit of the local community. Its objective is to acquire land and property and hold it in trust for the benefit of an area or community.

Land for People, with our support, has produced the Community Land Trust Handbook. It is a guide for communities wishing to explore the possibility of developing a CLT.

The Handbook provides a history of CLTs and also gives detailed case studies of successful CLTs.
