Meeting with Jesse Norman MP

Last month Jeff and Huw had a meeting with our MP to update him on our activities, understand his view on CLTs and ask for an update on the status of the Government’s Community Housing Fund, CHF, which is a matter of great importance not just to us but CLTs in Herefordshire and nationally.

Mr Norman informed us he was enthusiastic about community-led initiatives, including CLTs; would be willing to assist on specific HCLT projects when required; and stated that although there was no mention of the CHF in the budget, this was because priority was given to coronavirus measures. A statement on the continuation of CHF would be made in due course.
