Who We Are


Legacy Housing Land Trust Society is run by a dedicated group of volunteers and advisers who share a passion to see affordable housing available to everyone in Victoria.

Susan Tychie, Ben Isitt, Brandon Foreman, Linda Ross and Jana McLaughlin signed as “Applicants for Incorporation” and became the founding Directors with other members until the first AGM.

Thanks to the members of the Founding Board who undertook the application for Charitable Tax Status, held a Vision and Mission workshop and began the process of creating this website.

At the September 2016 AGM the first Board of directors was elected!
