Why have a Community Land Trust in Frome?


Frome has a desperate need for genuinely affordable housing. Rents and property prices are high, leaving many people unable to afford adequate accommodation.


The CLT’s homes for rent will remain genuinely affordable in perpetuity.


Homes provided by the CLT will be principally offered to people with a local connection, who might otherwise be forced to move elsewhere. 


CLT homes will be built with community in mind – homes in which people can feel secure and proud to live in.
