Housing Survey in Combe Martin

CMPC obtained the necessary grant and the survey was undertaken. This revealed at least 17 individuals in need of housing, with the true figure almost certainly higher. This outcome was a significant factor in the establishment of Combe Martin Community Land Trust (2018) which is carrying forward the work of providing affordable housing in Combe Martin.
