Following the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) approval to register Ashwell Community Land Trust Ltd as a Community Benefit Society (CBS) a meeting of the founder directors took place on 16th November to consider the next steps.
Click here to see the minutes of that meeting.
Regular updates are being given at the monthly Parish Council meetings and there will be further publicity ongoing as information becomes available.
A Members meeting is to be scheduled in January.
Ashwell residents will be able to become Members of the CBS and the overall aim will be to acquire land in Ashwell for the benefit of the community. Whether that land will be preserved as Green Space, Sport facilities or used to build houses or structures for the specific benefit of Ashwell residents will be for the Village to determine. If you have an interest in becoming a member please contact the Parish Council for more information.
