About LCT




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.
