With four Community Land Trusts (CLTs) having been established in the District so far, East Cambridgeshire District Council (ECDC) is helping lead the way nationally in terms of community-led development, supporting people who choose to live and work locally. 

CLTs for Soham, Witchford, Swaffham Prior and Stretham & Wilburton have all become legal entities, with support from the ECDC’s CLT scheme. Stretham & Wilburton, in particular, are well on their way to having their first affordable homes available.

Partner agencies include secondary schools, Scout and Guide groups, youth clubs, parish councils and other groups working with teenagers and young adults.
