This initiative aims to protect the diverse community that makes the area unique by providing truly affordable housing in perpetuity.
Roman Road CLT is working to provide a solution for residents to stay in the area who would otherwise be forced out by increased property prices.
The CLT was formed with support from local groups, including Roman Road Trust and Roman Road Neighbourhood Forum.
Roman Road CLT is committed to a bottom-up process that involves the community from the very beginning. Their initial objectives are to develop 2 derelict sites near Roman Road to provide around 40 affordable homes that meets the needs of the community.
The homes developed will be sold/rented at a rate tied to the income of residents. The CLT wants to improve the character of the neighbourhood and enhance safety for local residents.
How we’re helping
We provided advice on site allocations in the Neighbourhood Plan, and work to develop a vision and grow membership and local support. We have met with the board to advise on organisational governance.
