Legal Constitution (February 2019)

Bexhill Community Land Trust is pleased to announce that we are now legally constituted with the FCA as a Community Benefit Society – registration number 8045.

Cemetery Lodge Development Proposal:

Bexhill Community Land Trust was delighted to avail of funding to enable a feasibility study to take place on the proposal to build affordable homes on this site, which involved the demolition of a derelict council-owned building. Our proposal – would have created four- two bed houses and two one-bed flats and would have gone some way to providing much needed affordable housing in this area (see Current projects).

Whilst not being approved by Rother District Council at this time, the Community Land Trust is encouraged that the Council is progressing a planning application and construction of a new entrance to Bexhill Cemetery along St. Mary’s Road. This will facilitate the adoption of our proposals and we will revisit this development proposal later.
