Since the public meeting in January 2017 the Board members of the AACLT (Abbotts Ann Community Land Trust) have been working hard to bring to fruition the dream of a small development of affordable housing and housing for people wishing to ‘down-size’. We shall soon be able to share our plans with you and to invite your feedback on our proposals. Meanwhile we want to update you and we would very much welcome your feedback on anything you find on this website or any comments or questions you have about our plans. Please contact any of the Board members using the “Contact Us” page.

You will find on this website:
The story so far, telling you what we have achieved since the public meeting. You will also find in the archive section the PowerPoint slides shown at the public meeting and the report of it written soon after this is of interest but please note that it is now somewhat out of date.
