South Brent Community Land Trust is a community driven initiative to empower local people to build and purchase their own environmentally friendly and affordable homes within the village envelope.
Our aim is to enable families and individuals with low to moderate incomes and strong local connections, to continue to live and work within South Brent, thus strengthening the local community and protecting the long term economic health of the village.

The Trustees of South Brent Toll House invite past members of the South Brent Action & Community Group and all those interested to a Special General Meeting at 7.30pm, Tuesday 20th September in the Methodist Hall School Room to decide the future of the Action Group and care of the Toll House.
The Action Group has not held an AGM for over a year, has no income and does not have a functioning committee, but could use its remaining funds to cover the costs of maintaining and insuring (over £400p/a) the Toll House this year.
However, without any income the situation is unsustainable. Some maintenance work is also needed to keep the building in good shape.
An option at this meeting is for past members temporarily to renew their membership and new members to join to create a quorum (20) and elect a new committee either to wind up the Action Group and transfer the Toll House and financial assets to another organisation in South Brent or alternatively, if there is a will, to re start the group and take it forward. NB.
The Toll House is a Grade 2 listed building has also been listed (like the Island) on the register of 'Assets of Community Value' within the parish.
The effect of this is that such assets cannot be disposed of until purchase by, or transfer to, a community organisation or community interest group such as the Parish Council has been explored.
