Crystal Palace CLT is made up of local residents and aims to acquire land to provide affordable homes, workspace and other community assets in consultation with local residents.
Following Croydon Council’s release of a small site for community led housing, the Crystal Palace Transition Town Community came together to establish a Community Land Trust.
Crystal Palace Transition Town is part of the wider Transition Town network, a movement supporting communities to address local issues and promote sustainable ways of living.
The group’ aims for the The Lawns site in Upper Norwood is to build a 100% affordable housing scheme, meeting the needs of people in temporary accommodation, single parents, families with children, young people, and domestic abuse survivors.
The affordable housing will be a mix of London Affordable Rent, London Living Rent, and an equivalent to London Shared Ownership.
