Practical Considerations

Adur Collective Community Land Trust's area of benefit is the Adur boundary which encompasses Sompting, Lancing, Southwick and Shoreham. Meetings have been held remotely during lockdown but will resume in suitable venues in Lancing or Shoreham near train station links. Prospective board members would need to live and/or work within the Adur boundary but co-optees can be considered if they live outside of Adur.

Estimate of time needed: 3-7 hours / week 1.5 to 2 days a month including preparation and attendance at board meetings.



When do I need to be available?
