Our Projects

DACLT is going to build affordable homes that will be let to young workers in our town. DACLT will offer these homes at significantly below the market rate therefore we will give a helping hand to young people that are struggling to find affordable accommodation. Homes built by DACLT, on this site, will be permanently affordable for future owners.

These homes will be rented to:

  • People up to age 35
  • Employed in Dorchester
  • With a single income of up to £30,000 or a combined income of up to £60,000

The Tennis Courts Project

The Site

The Tennis Courts Project: Site of the first Dorchester Area CLT project

The location of the flats is in the centre of Dorchester, just off West Walks and Bowling Alley Walk. Dorchester Town Council has made the site available to DACLT where two tennis courts currently occupy the site. The two courts have been relocated on the site of the former bowling green.

The Plan

The architects Reed Watts are helping us to develop this complex site.

Reed Watts have experience in developing heritage sensitive locations and have worked with other Community Land Trusts. We think this makes us a good match.

We now have an application in with Dorset Council Planning Department. You can find it at WD/D/20/001242 on the planning department website.
