Transition Homes

As a Community Land Trust (CLT), Transition Homes is a not for profit, local community controlled organisation set up to own and manage land and other assets in perpetuity, for the benefit of the community.

This landmark project integrates affordable housing built with local natural materials, sustainable food and fuel production and high energy efficiency with reduced energy consumption.

Transtion Totnes, one of the more well-known Transition Towns, has established a Community Land Trust and after approximately 4 years of planning and no doubt a little bit of wrangling, it seems they will soon begin building up to 24 homes on a plot of land near Totnes. Best of luck to them!

We will have a look at Community Land Trusts in a later post, but if you’d like to encourage this kind of thing to happen around here, don’t forget to subscribe.
