Lyvennet Community Trust
A rapid journey of getting homes on the ground. Lyvennet Community Trust, based in one of the Government’s Big Society Vanguard locations in Cumbria, was formed following a housing needs survey carried out by Cumbria Rural Housing Trust (CRHT) in 2008. The Community Trust finished construction of 20 homes in 2012. 10 of the homes are rented, two shared ownership and eight self-build.
