The Lewes Community Land Trust (Lewes CLT)

We were born in 2008 as a local membership organisation to develop desperately needed ‘affordable’ housing. We became a Community Benefit Society in 2019, led by a strong, professional Board

Over 17,000 people nationally belong to around 300 CLTs - building more than 1,000 new community-led homes, with a further 16,000 in the pipeline We are members of the National CLT Network, who provide specialist advice and support, and are supported by Action in Rural Sussex’s (AIRS) Community Housing Hub - which helps local communities develop local sites.

How can you support Lewes CLT ?

By joining us. Strong membership demonstrates a broad base of local support and gives you a say in how we operate. Life membership costs £1 and any Lewes resident or worker over the age of 18 can sign up.
