A Suffolk village community are coming together to find innovative solutions for the affordable housing crisis facing local people priced out of their communities. East Bergholt Community Land Trust (EBCLT) has just held its second AGM and is celebrating achieving some significant milestones.
Established following a recommendation in the village Neighbourhood Plan, the EBCLT has been set up as a not-for-profit company with support from Babergh DC and EC Community Housing (formally CLT East). Following an accommodation needs survey, a community consultation and a land audit, demand has been established from those with strong local connections for affordable housing suited to young people and families as well as older people needing specially adapted homes and supported living. However, rather than just building traditional properties EBCLT is considering building more radical future-proofed smart housing that adapts to our changing needs as we age.
