The Community Land Trust Network has published its latest State of the CLT Sector report.
Launched by the Secretary of State Michael Gove MP in Parliament, the report finds that industry partnerships could help communities to build at least 278,000 homes through replicable project types.

The think tank Localis has launched a new report, "Brightness on the edge of town: how Community Land Trusts can deliver affordable housing".
The report calls for Government to give councils direct long-term funding and planning powers to support Community Land Trusts to build affordable homes for local people currently priced out of the housing market in tourism hotspots.
