A new group in Burton Bradstock is looking for places to put affordable housing in the area. 

They’re urging locals to spend just £1 for a share in the Community Land Trust (CLT) and become a member.

House prices in Burton Bradstock are above average for West Dorset which was £285,496 in September this year according to government statistics.

The CLT aims to provide housing for those in need as well as improve housing standards in the parish.

The group will focus on finding locations for small developments of affordable housing.

David Dixon is the Chair of Burton Bradstock CLT. He said: “Now that the Trust has been formed, we are moving on to the next steps, which include finding sites within the village for affordable homes and building our membership among local people.

The share scheme’s launching at a public meeting tonight at 7.30pm in Burton Bradstock Village Hall.
