Stretham and Wilburton Community Land Trust
Like many villages, Stretham near Ely is facing tough challenges over access to the affordable homes, shared amenities and local jobs that are vital to a vibrant and sustainable community. So, in 2011, the residents set up a Community Land Trust, assisted by CLT East, to take matters into their own hands. Stretham and Wilburton are currently in the build phase of developing 75 new homes, 23 of which will be affordable. The development also includes a GP surgery, business units and has been designed around a large village green. The first CLT occupants will move in by the end of 2016 and the CLT is already looking to the future and planning their next development.
