Granby 4 Streets CLT Toxteth, Liverpool
The CLT was created in 2011 to address affordable housing issues within Liverpool’s Toxteth area and became the first urban CLT in the UK. Their solution was to refurbish their existing derelict housing stock, rather than see them demolished for new homes, as a means of regenerating their local community.
Keswick CLT Cumbria
Keswick CLT was formed in 2009 following a Churches Together community consultation where it was clear that affordable housing was a big issue in the area. Being within the Lake District National Park, house prices are relatively high with a high proportion of second homes. After 12 years the CLT now own 40 properties after four successful affordable housing schemes.
