Differing from many other development trusts, CCDT was established as a requirement of the sale of Graylingwell Hospital to Linden Homes and Affinity Sutton.
From its first days, Chichester Community Development Trust worked hard to represent the needs of the new Graylingwell community, took responsibility for planning and negotiating for community buildings and led on the development of a sustainable community.

Since then, Chichester Community Development Trust has ensured the successful completion of two community buildings and delivered many community-building projects.
