Stewart Brown’s contribution to the Haslemere CLT

Many of our followers will have seen the obituary and tributes to Stewart Brown who sadly died last month.  Of his legacies for the community the best known is the Neighbourhood Plan driven through by Haslemere Vision inspired and led by his chairmanship.  But the Community Land Trust will remember him mainly because he was instrumental in promoting the concept and the principal instigator of a Community Land Trust in Haslemere against some quite determined opposition.  He inspired and helped build the strong team that is the Steering Group, and was always happy to advise and guide.

At the CLT’s AGM in January 2022 he will be in our thoughts, not least because it will be the first in which he will not be there providing his customary generous compliments, encouragement and advice.  The CLT will be forever in his debt.  Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time. He will be greatly missed by the town and all who knew him.
