Building homes for the future – together!

Calder Valley Community Land Trust believes that community-led efforts can help achieve the new homes we really need in our Valley.

We also believe that there are many people within our own community who have a little money available which they will be prepared to invest for social as well as financial return.

Calder Valley CLT has raised over £360,000 in community share investment capital, for help in funding both the Birks Court, Walsden and Fielden Acre projects.  Over 130 local people – and not so local people – have chosen to trust us with their savings.  We appreciate very much their support for our aims and principles.  This represents, in a very literal sense, real ‘buy in’ to what we are trying to achieve.

Our share capital is attracting a 2% rate of return. (We acknowledge with thanks those investors who have voluntarily opted for a lower rate of return).

We are not currently actively looking for community share investment.  However we do maintain a register of potential investors, and if you would like to be added to this register please email our secretary Andrew on
