Our mission is

Our mission is

“to provide sustainable affordable housing,

and workspace for community enterprises, in Somerset;

promoting co-operative principles and equality of opportunity

for the benefit of the community.”

SCCLT is a new co-operative society working to address the chronic shortage of affordable sustainable housing in Somerset, at the same time as creating incubators for new and growing community enterprises. We place tenants at the heart of our governance structure, so that the land trust is always accountable to its intended beneficiaries. At the same time, any Somerset resident can join and have a say in how the society is run; people outside the traditional county can also join, with limited voting rights. Download our leaflet for more information.

New closing date - now extended to 31st July

We are so close to our target - the £94,000 we have raised so far, plus £125,000 in match funding offered by Resonance Ltd, has got us to within a stone's throw of our target. However, we do need a bit more - so we are extending the share offer to the 31st July. That will definitely be it, so please do take a look at our offer document and supporting documents (which you'll find in the posts below) and consider whether you could become one of our members.
