The trustees met for an ′awayday’ on the first Sunday in January, and among other things discussed the CLT’s approach to allocations. This is not an immediate issue at the moment, but one which will obviously be really important when we have our first homes built and ready for their occupants.

The detailed allocation policy is being worked on (and we welcome input). We have agreed however that we will be aiming to prioritise people most in housing need, and who have a local connection. We will be seeking to develop mixed communities in CVCLT’s properties, for people from all walks of life. We want our eventual policy to be fair, transparent, simple, scalable (as we grow) and of course legally watertight.
