Housing Needs Survey 

Thank you to everyone who kindly returned the survey form over the summer. The report shows a clear need for affordable housing for local people and the headline results will be posted on the ABE CLT website by the time you read this. They will also be presented at the Aldingbourne PC meeting on 5th Nov and Barnham and Eastergate PC meeting on 3rd December, which provide an opportunity to ask questions. 

Partner Housing Associations

The CLT has selected two partner housing associations with which to bring affordable housing schemes for local people to fruition and manage properties: Saxon Weald and Aster. 

First AGM

The first CLT AGM was held in September, a short meeting at which a report of the Board’s achievements was presented, which is available on our website. Two new Board members were appointed: Hannah Wales and Joanne Brown. 

Board Members and volunteers

The CLT is still short of Board members from Barnham or Eastergate and secretarial support (minute – taking etc) – do let us know if you might be interested in either of these roles. . We invite people to attend a few meetings first before making a commitment.  The parish councils have been invited to send Observers so as to ensure good communication.

Membership  

We welcome a number of new CLT members. Membership enables you to keep in touch as housing schemes develop and costs £1 upwards, further donations being welcome from those who can afford more. The form was sent with the survey and is also available on our website. Please return to the Treasurer c/o Aldingbourne Trust, Blackmill Lane, Norton, Aldingbourne, Chichester PO18 0JP.

 

Contact the CLT via infoabeclt@gmail.com or Chairman Louise Beaton on 01243 543475 if you would like further information.
