Good news! On 10 March 2017 Brighton and Hove CLT was registered with the Financial Services Authority as a Community Benefit Society. More details can be found here.
The Government has unveiled its £60 million per year Community Housing Fund for communities affected by second home ownership. The National CLT Network has been working closely with DCLG on the fund and was quoted in the Government press release warmly welcoming its arrival.
In the first year the money is going to local authorities, with the largest shares going to the South West, South East and the East of England. The National CLT Network is working with the BSHF and the community-led housing alliance to advise local authorities on how best to use the money.
