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. You can see its public documents at the FCA, rather than at Companies House.

The Directors are a group of experts drawn with a range of skills and experience across business, commerce, finance and transport: Mike Gibson, Bob Chard, Stewart Turner, Jim Harkins, and Beverley Neilson. 

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 owners of a Class 139 Railcar that has recently been refurbished and is undergoing trials so that it can be ready to transport passengers. We are developing plans for it to operate both as a demonstrator and in regular public service.
