What do CLTs do?

  • They enable people to stay close to their jobs and families maintaining social links and support.
  • They enable employers to retain employees.
  • They provide decent size functional homes which retain families in their communities and enable them to live effective lives.
  • They permanently protect homes so that they benefit subsequent generations
  • By maximising affordability they free up disposable income to spend in the real economy rather than on ultra-high housing costs.
  • They can develop other assets the community needs - community buildings, green spaces, food and energy production.
  • They can generate surpluses which can be spent on what the community needs - meals for the elderly, care services, transport
