Inside Housing - 'Development of the Week'

Sam’s Acre is a  residential development of 34 dwellings that included a range of tenures for affordable housing and 10 units specifically built for The Community Land Trust (CLT).

BoonBrown worked with the developer and South Petherton Community Land Trust – set up by residents to tackle the town’s affordable housing shortage – to build Sam’s Acre, with support from Wessex Community Land Trust Project.

The scheme provides 22 homes for affordable rent, five for shared ownership and seven for Rent to Buy.
