A society for the benefit of the community
LCT Limited is a Community Benefit Society - an incorporated democratic business set up as a social enterprise.
It was registered in 2008, and is presently completing its preparation for trading.
The Directors are a group of experts drawn with a range of skills and experience across business, commerce, finance and transport:
John Hurdley, Steve Deane, David Bathurst, Bob Chard, Keith Longstoff, Andre Gruning and Mike Gibson. The secretary and project manager is Alex Lawrie, a social enterprise consultant on secondment from Somerset Co-operative Services CIC and GO-OP.
Lightweight Community Transport works closely with other enterprises in the field, including Pre Metro Operations Limited and GO-OP Limited.
We are part owners, along with Parry People Movers, of a Class 139 Railcar. We are developing plans for it to operate both as a demonstrator and in regular public service.
