An Evaluation of the CLT Start Up Fund

The Community Land Trust (CLT) Fund was established in October 2008 as a four-year pilot programme by a consortium of funders which has included the Tudor Trust, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, CAF, Nationwide Foundation and a private donor. The aim of the Fund was to stimulate the development of the CLT sector in England and Wales by providing access to funding and technical assistance. The Fund is regarded as having been critical to the success of most groups, whether such success is measured in terms of incorporation, community engagement, planning consent, project completion or other milestones.
