Land for the people: the story of community land trusts

On Common Ground is a collection of essays about community land trusts (CLTs). Its many voices range from academics to professional organisers and community activists. Together, they tell stories which explain what CLTs are, how they work and why they matter. Shelley Feldman, herself a member and employee of the Heart of Hastings CLT, found the book a fascinating and inspiring read.

“Oi! SeaSpace / SeaChange / HBRL / whatever your name is: this land is our land”

Last Saturday saw a forgotten patch of land in Ore Valley become the centre of attention for the first time since the Broomgrove power station burned down 17 years ago. HOT’s Erica Smith was a volunteer steward. In between directing cars to the College car park, her thoughts turned to SeaSpace, SeaChange and the Great Battle for Neighbourhood Renewal. Scroll to the bottom of this article to find out how you can show your support for this brilliant community-led regeneration project.

Two ways to warm up Ore Valley this Saturday

For over 40 years the old Broomgrove Power Station site has been left empty and derelict, but in September 2016 the Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust was given a licence on the land to start working with local people to design and create a new kind of development from the bottom up. Erica Smith talks to Jess Steele and others from the Heart of Hastings about the project.
