Cornwall Community Land Trust Limited (Cornwall CLT) was established in April 2006 as a result of the Cornwall Community Land Trust Project which became a nationally acclaimed pilot scheme. Cornwall Community Land Trust was registered as an independent Industrial and Provident Society with charitable rules in 2007. It is one of the most progressive and successful community land trusts in England, delivering or enabling more than 260 affordable homes and has more projects in the pipeline.
Initial revenue funding was provided by Cornwall County Council and the Tudor Trust, with top up funding from DEFRA and the Charities Aid Foundation. Cornwall Rural Community Charity provides fully serviced office facilities and support to Cornwall CLT. Based in Penzance we have professional staff members and a Board of voluntary Members.
We are a Registered Provider of social housing and an Investment Partner for Homes England.
