Welcome to The Lakeland Housing Trust
Tourism is an essential part of life in Central Lakeland but the increasing second home and holiday let market means that house prices, in some areas, have increased at a rate that makes it very difficult for local people to buy or rent a home. As a consequence, the sense of ‘local community’ is being lost.
Our aim is to provide rented homes for local people who cannot afford to buy or long-term rent accommodation at current market prices. Our affordable rents have resulted in several of our tenants being able to save for deposits and subsequently buy their own homes.
A message from the Lakeland Housing Trust President – Lord Inglewood
“The very purpose of the Trust is to offer low cost rented housing which helps keep villages alive and allows local people to live and work in the heart of the Lake District...
...There are many ways you can help us – even the smallest actions make significant differences.”
