On 2nd February, the Sixth Annual General Meeting of ECLT Ltd was very well attended. Minutes can be read here: Minutes of Sixth AGM 02 02 2023
The meeting marked the retirement of Alan Brasier, who has served on the original Steering Group and then ECLT Ltd Board for nearly 10 years. Alan has also given generous help to Keep Eastington Rural over more than two decades. He is replaced by Sarah Underdown, who also has a KER background amongst other contributions to Parish activities.
Present for the meeting were nine of the original 23 members who gathered to initiate ECLT in October 2013. Membership has now reached 158, of whom 140 are “active”, in that they still live in, or have a strong family connection in the Traditional Hamlets of Eastington.
Chair Tom Morrison’s review of 2021-2022, as given to the AGM, is available here: ECLT Village – AGM 2023

A Big Welcome to our first tenants – we all wish you a Merry Christmas and a very happy time here to come!
– and we must thank our builders. EG Carter, for pulling out all the stops in these difficult times to make this possible.
Fullers Close homes are mostly all allocated now – and all have gone to people with genuine long term Eastington connections. Hopefully some will be in before Christmas. More news of that soon, meanwhile, click on the pic for a quick look around the site:
As from Wednesday 16th September, homes in Fullers Close will be available for bidding on Homeseeker Plus.
Approximately half the homes will be advertised from 16th September until 6th October and then the rest from 7th October to 27 October.
If you are registered on Homeseeker Plus with a local connection to the traditional hamlets of Eastington (including the village of Alkerton) you are able to bid. Please remember to state your local connection.
These advertisements are coming out early because of the expected popularity of the homes and the administration involved in allocation for so many homes at one time.
It is hoped that successful applicants will be able to move in before Xmas but that remains weather- and Covid-dependant, say the builders. To see the latest photos of activity on site click here.
The latest Parish Housing Needs Survey showed that residents of Eastington (excluding Great Oldbury) now have local/family requirements here for another 20-odd affordable homes over and above those being built at Fullers Close.
So, project 2 begins – see details here
