Youlgrave Community Land Trust

Youlgrave Clt Copy_0

Youlgrave Community Land Trust (YCLT) was formed in January 2013 to acquire, hold and maintain community assets for the benefit of the local people in Youlgrave and the surrounding area of the Bradford Valley.

After public meetings on village priorities which started in 2009, YCLT has taken forward the number one priority identified – the need for more affordable housing. In the summer of 2013 YCLT, in partnership with Peak District Rural Housing Association, successfully applied for planning permission to build eight affordable homes in Conksbury Lane. It has also applied for funding for the housing from the government’s Homes and Communities Agency. Updates on the housing project are available here.
