Help us name the Bristol Community Land Trust Savings Account!

BCLT has teamed up with Bristol Credit Union to come up with a unique savings account. This account is designed to help BCLT members and members of associated groups (for example housing co-operatives and self builders) to save toward the cost of buying a shared equity stake in a BCLT home or to put toward the cost of preparing and moving into a new home.But there are also a number of additional wider benefits of saving through Bristol Credit Union including:

– helping BCLT members to plan their long term financial future
– supporting local community housing and assets
– helping to support a future opportunity for BCLT to purchase assets
– helping to support a future opportunity for members to get mortgages through Bristol Credit Union for BCLT homes.

We need members help to come up with a suitable name for this account. We’ve set the ball rolling with a few suggestions…

– Co-op home saver
– Co-op future saver
– Co-op community saver

Let Anna:  know if you have any suggestions! We need a name that inspires people to sign up!

Once we had decided on a name, the account will be set up and ready to sign up to in a months time. In the near future, you will be able to sign up online for this account with no need to send out documentation. More details to follow.
