About Us
The Knaresborough Community Land Trust
First Steps

How Did We Start?

Our early beginnings
The Knaresborough CLT came about following on from the Town Plan published in 2017 which highlighted the need for affordable housing for locals.

What is a Community Land Trust?

A Community Land Trust (CLT) is a not for profit community-based organisation run by volunteers that delivers housing and other community facilities at permanently affordable levels for local people.
CLTs genuinely empower local communities whether it's through housing for the elderly or running a community hub, shop or post office.
CLTs can apply for grants to support projects and also receive a small income from rents to pay for the running of the Trust, its present and future projects.
There is a national network of CLTs all running similar projects but based on local need.

Who can become a member?

Knaresborough Community Land Trust is an open membership, non-profit organisation – anyone who is 16 years or over and lives, works or studies in the Knaresborough area or surrounding villages can join.

Free Membership

Membership is free, though donations are always welcome – your signature on the form ensures you have a vote on all projects and on board elections.

Voting

Voting is based on ‘one member one vote’. In the future, the CLT may offer a share option but the value of any shares you may own at any point will not alter your right to only one vote on each item for consideration.

Donate

Every penny helps. If you would like to make a donation, please do.
