Reasons for setting up a CLH scheme

“People set up and join CLTs / co-ops etc for all sorts of different reasons.  

It might be that there is a lack of affordable homes for young people or families in the village or neighbourhood, where local people are having to move out of the place they call home, and communities want to do something about it. 

It might be that the area has suffered years of decline and distinvestment, leaving empty properties and blight, and the community want to bring homes back into use and turn their neighbourhood around. 

Or it might be that the community is doing a Neighbourhood Plan and they want to take charge of how that Plan is delivered. 

In all these cases, the community wants to make their area a better place to live, and they want more control over how that happens.”
