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.

On the day of Donald Trump's inauguration, we're getting together to start healing the divisions of 2016 and bulding bridges in our community. The words of Martin Luther King - someone who confronted division and injustice in America - are a particular inspration: "Let us live together as brothers and sisters in a community". Join us on Taunton's oldest bridge to show your support for building bridges between all the different groups that make up our community, so we can work together for all our futures.
