Wirksworth Transition Community Land Trust

Wirksworth Transition Community Land Trust was created as a charity in 2018 to greatly improve the energy efficiency of housing in Wirksworth and Middleton. Homes are one of our biggest sources of carbon emissions in the UK - accounting for nearly a quarter (22%) of all our emissions.

For various reasons, including the pandemic, they have been unable to start even a small project to build or retrofit any houses. They are now looking for existing local property to retrofit and make available to residents in need at an affordable rent. They are also planning some Zoom webinars to bring in knowledgeable people to share insight.
