How can I get involved?
Below are details of the newly created Community Land Trusts which have been created in the Borough, with contact details should you wish to ask about their experiences or join your local group.
Flegg Community Land Trust
This Community Land Trust (CLT) covers the parishes of:
- Repps with Bastwick
- Stokesby with Herringby
It is open to welcoming any new parishes or members.
The Flegg CLT vision:
'Building well designed, energy-efficient homes with lower running costs which can be owned by the local communities in perpetuity and managed in a suitable structure for the benefit of the CLT, for example by a housing association or a registered provider.'
Great Yarmouth Community Land Trust

Who are we looking for?
We are looking for groups of local people with backing from their Parish Council who want to make a difference to the housing provision for their area.
The Community Housing Fund is for any Community Led Housing organisation working within the Borough of Great Yarmouth to provide housing for the people of Great Yarmouth.
