Increased Investment in Cornwall Community Land Trust

For years I campaigned for increased investment in Community Land Trusts and was delighted that the 2016 Budget included a new Community Housing Fund to help address the impact of second homes in communities.

The South West will receive £20m per year to deliver genuinely affordable homes for local people to rent or buy. Cornwall Council has today been allocated £5,117,980 of this fund, which will help Cornwall Community Land Trust and others to develop more community led homes for local people.
