Community Land Trust Meeting – Tuesday 13 March 2018

Great Yarmouth Borough Council have arranged a meeting on Tuesday 13 March 2018 to discuss the potential of setting up a Community Land Trust or Trusts covering the northern parishes.  The meeting will take place at All Saints Hall, Scratby at 7pm.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is exploring Community Land Trusts as a way for communities to take the lead on bringing forward new affordable homes within their own areas.

The meeting on 13 March follows a positive initial gathering in December which aimed to gauge community interest in setting up a Trust or Trusts for the north of the Borough.

In the south a new Lothingland CLT has already been established covering Belton, Browston, Burgh Castle, Fritton and St Olaves.

All residents are invited to attend.

Forthcoming SNAP meetings:

Safer Neighbourhood Action Panel – or SNAP – meetings allow members of the public to address their safety concerns with police representatives and set out crime prevention plans for their neighbourhoods.

The first of the scheduled meetings will take place at All Saints Hall in Scratby at 7pm on Tuesday, March 7. This will be a combined meeting of the Rural Flegg Villages and Caister and Coastal Villages SNAP groups.

On Wednesday, March 15, at St Peter’s Church in Gorleston, the next Gorleston SNAP meeting will take place, also starting at 6pm.

Then, the following day, Thursday, March 16, the North Yarmouth SNAP meeting will take place at St Paul’s Church on Salisbury Road in Great Yarmouth.

All members of the public are welcome to attend next month’s SNAP meetings.
