Anna Bailey is a local Councillor, representing the Downham Villages at East Cambridgeshire District Council and Ely South at Cambridgeshire County Council. She is Leader of the District Council and oversees Adult Social Care at the County Council where she is Chairman of the Adults Committee. She is a passionate supporter of Community Land Trusts which she believes allows local, working people that are so often shut out of the housing market in East Cambs to have a home of their own affordably, and that the benefits to communities of CLTs are far reaching and ever-lasting!

Lisa Stubbs is a local Councillor representing Stretham, Wilburton, Witchford, and Little Thetford at East Cambridgeshire District Council. Lisa is the Vice Chair of the Planning committee for East Cambridgeshire District Council. Lisa also works full-time as a Property Manager.
Lisa strongly backs Community Land Trust schemes because they present local, working people with an opportunity to afford to live in quality housing within their community. Small towns and villages are the glue that hold our country together and by not pricing people out of their local area, Lisa is firmly convinced that CLTs are a means of keeping communities together
