House Plan

To celebrate its first 20 years, the Canterbury Community Trust put aside $20 million to be spent on social housing projects within the region. Housing was seen as the most pressing social issue of the time.

The Canterbury Community Trust's Marlborough trustee at that time, Fran Jessep, spent a long time searching for an appropriate partner for the Marlborough portion of this exciting venture. She was impressed with the concept which the Marlborough Sustainable Housing Trust presented and a constructive partnership was established. The Trust has been impressed with the dedication and huge voluntary time commitment the MSHT's trustees have put into getting this innovative housing project up and running and the Canterbury Community Trust is very pleased to be working together with the MSHT to fund this venture.
