The Story So Far
How did the Aldingbourne, Barnham and Eastergate Community Land Trust begin?
In February 2018, a public meeting determined the general consensus in favour of setting up a Community Land Trust (CLT). Consequently, the Aldingbourne, Barnham and Eastergate (ABE) Community Land Trust was formed in March 2019.
Considerable progress has been made and investigations are underway into possible options for providing affordable housing for our local community.
What is the ABE CLT's purpose?
Our main purpose is to develop or buy locally affordable homes within the Aldingbourne, Barnham and Eastergate parishes to meet a range of housing needs for those with a local connection to the area, in perpetuity.
We want to make our community stronger by enabling families to remain living close to relatives, friends and support networks, and for workers to live close to their place of employment.
Th CLT can also help the community by developing other facilities such as a shop, pub, village hall or green.
