HADDENHAM COMMUNITY LAND TRUST

Shaping Your Local Community

 
Like many local villages Haddenham faces some big future challenges with pressure for more housing to support growth in the Cambridge area. The growth and increasing popularity of the area is putting pressure on house prices making home ownership out of reach of some long standing  local families and limiting development of shared Amenities that are vital for a lively and sustainable community.
 
In recent years planning policies have resulted in restricted housing supply but now there is and new exciting chance to allow us to make some of our own choices. The 2011 Localism Act and 2012 National Planning Framework provided the opportunity to do things differently. A number of local Communities such as Stretham, Wilburton and Witchford have created Community Land Trusts and now Haddenham is doing the same supported by the Parish Council and East Cambridgeshire District Council.
 
Our aim is to give people who live and work in the Village more say in how we want the village to develop in ways that benefit the whole community.
 
A bit of background
 
Community Land Trust (CLTs) are being set up across the UK as not for profit organisations run by local volunteers to develop housing, workspaces and other assets that meet future community needs. They can help people live closer to their work, schools, shops, clubs and families.
As an indpendent body, Hadenham CLT is totally accountable to local people, with rules to ensure that assets will be owned forever by the community. For more information about CLTs, visit www.communitylandtrusts.org.uk
