The Neighbourhood Plan for Witchford has clearly identified a need for affordable housing to allow local people to work and live locally.

A Community Land Trust for Witchford is being created to safeguard a pool of housing, designed and built in a sympathetic way, in consultation with the local community, which will be kept by Witchford CLT in perpetuity for the use of local people.

At this stage the Trust is seeking ‘expressions of interest’ from landowners who would consider selling land for new development such as housing, workspaces, or community facilities in the parish.

To be considered the land should be well related to key services and facilities in the town, available on a freehold basis and generally suitable for development and should meet the financial criteria of the CLT.

Expressions of interest should be sent to CLT East at the address below, who are assisting in the site selection process on behalf of Witchford CLT, in partnership with the Parish and District Councils.

If you are interested in offering land for consideration please apply for further details:
