Notice of our AGM
Join Transition Homes CLT for our AGM on Tuesday November 7th at 7pm at Dartington Village Hall, where we’ll be voting to elect two new Trustees to the Board. AGMs can be a bit dry, but we'll have some local mulled cider, tea and nibbles, and there will be time for asking questions and talking about our plans.
Please come and meet the team, and if you’re a member, vote! If you're unable to come, you can send us a proxy vote form (click here to download). If you'd like to become a member, you can join on the night or find out more here.
Meet our co-opted Trustees who we're voting to elect:
Tom Winfield: I am a carpenter and engineer interested in the integration of modern timber fabrication and traditional handcrafts in the design & build of rural housing. As someone currently renting in Dartington parish, I have a real and immediate interest in anyone trying to get access to land and housing, especially those trying to do so in a ‘sustainable’ way. Because of this I want to support Transition Homes CLT in delivering the Clay Park project and hopefully other innovative local housing initiatives in the future. I am particularly interested in development of rural, community-led, self-build and custom build, especially co-housing, affordable housing, and tiny homes and more widely, ruralism and the good stewardship of woodlands.
Ruth Sutcliffe: I grew up in social rented housing so understand what a difference quality affordable housing can make first hand. Most recently I have been living almost 8 years in intentional community (Bowden House). During my time there I have been very involved with membership processes and policy making, project managing small builds on site and most recently setting up and developing a housing co-operative to take ownership of the manor house at the centre of Bowden Community. I was involved in all aspects of this project including managing planning and refurbishment of the grade 1 listed building, financial project management, raising funds and overview of ongoing project co-ordination. As well as being a director of Bowden Housing Co-operative I am also a director of the freehold company at Bowden (Bowden House Ltd).
