A community land trust is an organisation established with the express purpose of acquiring and managing land for the social, economic, and environmental benefit of the local community. The CLT movement has grown out of rural roots in the UK but is increasingly becoming an urban phenomenon and has attracted much policy attention in relation to the potential for such initiatives to secure affordable housing in low income areas and catalyse neighbourhood revival. We will hear directly from well-known initiatives in Liverpool as well as from a recent evaluation of urban CLTs commissioned by the National CLT Network. The event will be focused on exploring some of the challenges in both setting up and sustaining CLTs over time as well as the many benefits that may result.

Speakers:

Tom Moore, University of Liverpool (Evaluation of the Urban Community Land Trust Project)
Marianne Heaslip, URBED, Granby 4 Streets and Homebaked
Becki Winson, the New Economics Foundation
