Buy shares in the Trust: Become a Landlord!
Shares are £50 each and they mean that you part own our assets of land and buildings.
These are lifelong shares in the Bishops Castle & District Community Land Trust (the Trust), and entitle you to one vote at the Annual General Meeting. Each community share comes with a beautifully presented share certificate. The shares are completely non-profit making and cannot be sold on or transferred (unless stated so in a Will) – you are investing in the future.
There is no limit to the number of shares one person can own, but they will hold only one vote regardless of the volume of shares.
This means the society remains completely democratic.
Shares are refundable upon request; this is at the discretion of the Board and may be subject to a small administration fee. However, the Trust may decide to withdraw this option without notice and at any given point. These rules are designed to safeguard the Trust as a community-benefit (not member-benefit) society. We strongly recommend that you read our Society Rules before becoming a member shareholder. You can see them by clicking here.
