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.

Vegetables - and somewhere to cook them

 But what use are vegetables without somewhere to cook them? Well, the first kitchen has gone in to flat 3:
 And in case you think it's looking a little cold in there, the radiators and secondary glazing are also going in.
