Report points way to better home supply

A community land trust (CLT) and mutual housing model could provide more affordable housing in the capital, according to latest research.

A report by the Greater London Authority housing and homelessness unit for mayor Ken Livingstone backs the approach to meet the needs of people on medium to low incomes.

Under the model by CDS Cooperatives, which focuses on those earning between £17,000 and £25,000 a year, a CLT would lease land to a home ownership trust to offer members a stake.

It could prove "more accessible and grant a better social return on public subsidy" than current low-cost home ownership schemes, the report claims.
