Welcome to Emsworth Community Land Trust


The Emsworth Victoria Cottage Hospital (EVCH) is registered with Havant Borough Council as an Asset of Community Value under the Localism Act 2011. Despite this, NHS Property Services Ltd has placed EVCH on the market for sale. They have done this without providing any notice and without engaging with any community groups.

Our local MP, Alan Mak, has written to NHS Property Services about this. Click HERE to Alan's letter and HERE to read the reply from NHS Property Services.

The Emsworth Community Land Trust has been established by a  steering group of local volunteers, working closely with other interested groups in the Community, including representatives from:

  • Emsworth Forum

  • Friends of Emsworth Community Health

  • Emsworth Business Association

  • Emsworth Community Centre

  • Emsworth Residents Association

Emsworth Community Land Trust wishes to acquire the site in order tomaximise the possibility of providing space for community use and for affordable apartments.

 There are many successful examples throughout the UK where communities have taken the lead on new affordable housing and community health schemes, and we strongly believe Emsworth has a chance of meeting these ambitions.

The community of Emsworth have made their vision clear, and should the site be sold to another developer it is highly unlikely that this vision will ever be realised. Please support our campaign to ensure this important asset remains in the hands of the Emsworth community.
