Urban CLT Fund gives £10,000 to Soham
Tue 18 Nov 2014
We were delighted to hear that the Thrift CLT for Soham has been successful in applying for a special new fund granted nationally to towns with a population of over 10,000 people. Only 20 applications were successful in the competitive bid. In awarding the grant the selection panel said “The panel felt that your proposal to integrate a CLT with a large urban extension could be an interesting precedent for the CLT movement as a whole” and “Overall your application scored highly on all our selection criteria: likelihood of delivering a successful scheme, likely impact of the grant and public benefit. “ The CLT can now move forward with legal support, financial and business planning and engaging with delivery partners. The scheme will also give them access to a 2 year programme of support and the opportunity to share experiences, good and challenging, with the other 19 Urban CLTs nationwide. Well done to Soham CLT!
