Learning Affordable Housing Development in the U.K-Granby Four Street Community Land Trust


Granby Four Streets Community Land Trust (G4SCLT) was constituted in 2011 as the choice of the Granby residents as the vehicle to deliver the aims and objectives of residents trapped in a cycle of under-investment and social exclusion. The aim of the G4SCLT was to ensure that the resident voice became the dominant narrative within the decision making process. G4SCLT was awarded the Turner Prize 2015 with our collaborators Assemble, and collaborates on several more projects aimed to bring other community spaces back into use for the wider Toxteth area.
