Pinchbeck Community Land Trust wants to hear from villagers with ideas for projects to support in two villages




The charity behind an affordable homes development in Pinchbeck is looking for projects in which to invest its income.

Pinchbeck Community Land Trust (PCLT) wants to hear from villagers in both Pinchbeck and West Pinchbeck of ideas it can back for the benefit of the community.

Following its formation in 2013, PCLT worked with Lincs Rural Housing Association to build 14 homes for rent in Maurice Chappell Way, Pinchbeck.

In return. PCLT receives "ground-rent from the housing association, along with other income, which it now wants to see spent in Pinchbeck and West Pinchbeck.

Peter Sanders, chairman of PCLT, said: "We're trying to do something with a small piece of land in West Pinchbeck which a developer has given to Pinchbeck Parish Council.

"Our first thoughts were to build a little park but having asked the residents, the obvious thing was to turn it into a car park.

"We're still trying to talk to people at the county highways department and this is ongoing, although not as quickly as we'd like."

Mr Sanders revealed that PCLT is hoping to hold talks with both Pinchbeck East Primary School and St Bartholomew's School, West Pinchbeck, to hear ideas from pupils and staff.

"We're looking at the possibility of a skate park in Pinchbeck but we're a long way off at this stage," Mr Sanders said.

"PCLT has money to be used for the benefit of people of Pinchbeck and West Pinchbeck."

Anyone with funding ideas for the PCLT can drop them in at Pinchbeck Community Hub and Library.
