Eastington Community Land Trust Ltd. (ECLT)
Providing the affordable homes that Eastington needs
Completing 23 homes in December 2020
After seven months of working under Covid-compliant procedures, E G Carter will deliver all 23 homes in December, exactly as they promised in May post-lockdown.
That is very impressive project management, not only of managing social distancing rules with up to 30 contractors on site but also coping with erratic bottlenecks in the supply chain.
Aster Homes, our partners who will be running the development, have been working through hundreds of applicants to find people with the relevant local connections to fulfil our aim – Eastington Homes for Eastington People.
All homes will be allocated by mid-December and quite a few of them will occupied in good time for Christmas.
This is the largest project completed by our community since the OHMG Community Centre ten years ago and the largest community-led development of 100% affordable homes for rent, anywhere in Gloucestershire in living memory.
