Community Land Trust Bruxelles

The Community Land Trust Brussels (CLTB) is a non-profit organisation that aims at producing housing affordable to low-income households in accordance with the Community Land Trust formula of separate ownership of the land and the building.

It was established in 2012 and has built from scratch a management model that involves participatory governance and co-creation of housing projects with future inhabitants.
