CRHA & Community Land Trusts in Cornwall

CRHA was at the forefront of helping develop the community land trust model in England to help communities to find their own solutions to meet housing need.

Here are the details of some of the community land trusts CRHA has worked with:

Cornwall Community Land Trust

Part of CRHA’s work involved setting up Cornwall Community Land Trust as an independent organisation to help develop local community based groups. Cornwall Community Land Trust (CCLT) was established by CRHA in 2007 as part of our Cornwall Community Land Trust Project. It is now a separate independent organisation.
