|"East Chinnock CLT is a not-for-profit community-based organisation set up for the benefit of the parish. Its
initial focus (and the reason for its formation) is an attempt to
acquire the Portman Arms site in partnership with a Housing Association.
The goal is to retain the pub as a community-managed business (with
potential for the re-introduction of a village shop) and develop part of
the site with affordable housing for local people. |
Looking further ahead, there are many other projects that a CLT can undertake to improve the physical, social and environmental infrastructure of the community.
Membership is open to anyone who lives within the parish boundary, regardless of age.
We strongly encourage all eligible residents to become members
(it only costs £1 for a share plus £1 per annum admin fee).
Having a share entitles you to vote at general meetings and to have a say in what happens in your community."
