Eastington CLT was set up by concerned residents of Eastington in response to the lack of affordable local housing both for our children as they grow up and for extended family support as we grow up even more.
The primary aim is to serve our local housing needs whilst helping to limit further development in our Parish, via the Parish, Neighbourhood and Local Plan policies.
ECLT aims to provide just what is needed within Eastington.
- The (documented) need from the 2013/14 Housing Needs Survey was for 23 Affordable Rent homes – which would remain ‘rentable’ for Eastington-linked people in perpetuity.
This resulted in our first project – Fullers Close in Claypits.
- A second Housing Needs survey in 2019 showed a demand for 54 homes; 31 more than Fullers Close was providing. Hence Project 2 became a necessity and planning for this started in late 2019.
