London Community Land Trust: Creating communities through affordable housing
London’s first Community Land Trust was established in the former psychiatric hospital of St Clements, in the Mile End area. It provides affordable housing, allowing long-term residents who would be priced out to stay in the area, countering the tendencies of displacement and housing unaffordability. Supported by the Greater London Authority to work with a private developer, the CLT also promotes community engagement and is actively working on the creation of a community centre at the St Clements site.
