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.

We are firming up our ideas for new flats - between six and eight in number - behind 10 East Reach. We'd like to hear your thoughts on their design and construction.
If you are a member of the CLT, you'll soon get an email inviting you to respond. If you aren't, and you live or work in Somerset, why not consider joining? You need only pay £1 to get full membership and have a say in how this project develops - not only in Taunton but elsewhere. The application form is here.
The proposals can be viewed as a PDF file by clicking on this link.
