The rural strand of the recent Community Land Trust National Demonstration Programme was funded by Carnegie UK Trust, the Housing Corporation and the Commission for Rural Communities. This report, published April 2008 and launched at the 2008 National CLT conference, forms the final output of the programme. It includes a foreword from Kate Braithwaite from Carnegie UK Trust.
The publication covers the key issues for rural CLTs and demonstrates what is possible when the ingenuity and hard work of local communities is matched by a progressive approach from local authorities and funders. Seven inspirational case studies are included, which are the pilot projects highlighted in the Housing Green Paper of 2007.
