2019 Expression of Interest

By Ian Bracey on June 22, 2019

Are you looking for a home? Last year we asked anyone who was looking for a CLT home to fill in a short Expression of Interest form. That information has been really useful to us in looking for a project, talking with developers and convincing South Cambs District Council to support the CLT as part of the new town development.

This means that we now have funds to cover the costs of our formal incorporation. We have been drawing up our model rules and will soon be making our application to become a Community Benefit Society. The housing crisis is still making headlines, with a number of major reports, like the Letwin Review, indicating that something different needs to be done, particularly with the development of larger sites like the one on the Barracks, which is what we are trying to do.
