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.

Please vote for our community gardening project!

We have been fortunate enough to be included in Aviva's Community Fund competition - and it is all about votes from the public. So now is the chance to show your support for our Community Land Trust, and in particular for our volunteers' efforts in making the unloved back gardens in Taunton town centre productive and beautiful.
