Welcome to Homes For Ulverston CLT Ltd (H4US)

We are a Community Land Trust

Community Land Trusts (CLTs) are set up and run by (extra)ordinary people to develop and manage homes as well as other assets. CLTs act as long-term stewards of housing, ensuring that it remains genuinely affordable, based on what people actually earn in their area, not just for now but for every future occupier.

We are an exempt charitable Community Benefit Society, founded by the citizens of Ulverston, a market town in Cumbria, which is situated by Morecambe Bay and just three miles from the Lake District.

Our vision is “to support people in finding their own solutions to their housing needs”. 


Community Involvement

 All our project ideas come from our members. Members’ knowledge of life in our community melds with technical knowledge on e.g. renewable energy, climate change action and design for wellbeing. This all feed into the project drafts, as we co-create our plans. Those members interested in living at the project create the plans by explaining to the architects what they want and working together from the outset.
