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.

Our share offer is now open! But not for long...

This is a share issue to provide new affordable rental accomodation in central Taunton, and provide  the basis for the society to plan further housing in the future.
This property will be held in perpetuity and employed for the benefit of the community in Taunton, and will enable us to  go on to benefit communities elsewhere in Somerset as well.
We've given ourselves just six weeks to raise at least £187,500 - but with 4.5% interest available, we're hoping many people will feel that a portion of their savings could be usefully employed serving our community.
