Membership of HCLT & Registration of Interest

Membership of Herstmonceux CLT is open to anyone age 16 or over on completion of a membership form and purchase of at least one share at £1.00 per share. Shares entitle you to vote at the AGM and offer yourself as a member of the Board. You may purchase any number of shares in support of the CLT but you are only entitled to one vote. The membership form may be downloaded here and returned with payment in a sealed envelope to the Village Information Centre, 2/3 The Old Forge, Herstmonceux, or to HCLT c/o Beacon Cottage, Windmill Hill, East Sussex BN27 4RY. You will receive a share certificate in confirmation.

Registration of Interest (ROI) forms allow the CLT to keep a list of those interested in rental, shared ownership or purchase of HCLT homes. It enables us to compile a survey of local housing need and keep you informed of our progress. Completion does not commit you to accepting CLT housing, nor does it commit the CLT to offering you housing. When homes are available the list will enable detailed application forms to be sent to you. The CLT only has access to your name and contact information, all other ROI information is held securely by Action in Rural Sussex.

The ROI form may be downloaded here and should be returned to Action in rural Sussex (AirS) at the address on the form. AirS keep the data secure on behalf of the HCLT.

The Privacy and Data Protection declaration sets out how we hold and manage your personal data. Please read it, as your completion of the membership and/or ROI forms signifies your consent.
