Fownhope Community Land Trust Ltd

Introduction

Fownhope Community Land Trust Ltd was formed and incorporated in June 2019 following three years of hard work by the Fownhope Community Land Trust Steering Group. The Trust would not have come into being without the dedication of the people who served in this Group and the Directors acknowledge the valuable contribution they have made. The original Steering Group web site is still available and can be viewed by following this link.

The Trust is an incorporated Community Benefit Society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014, registration number 8142, and is registered with the Financial Conduct Authority.
