BEGINS the event blurb: “This event will look at the motivations that lie behind a variety of community-led housing initiatives and at the kinds of local policies that could support such work, now and in the future.
“It will look at
– the aspirations behind local community-led housing initiatives
– how policies can promote partnerships, sites, properties and finances
– how policies can generate opportunities in response to local demand
“Community-led housing is a growing movement through which local communities look to provide affordable and high-quality housing that will meet local needs and be in line with local aspirations.
“This could involve Community Land Trusts, Housing Co-operatives, Cohousing neighbourhoods or self-build schemes and be either a focus on new properties or on the renovation of empty and unused buildings.”
