EXPLORE the ‘perfect neighbourhood’ comprising good homes, good food and good spaces.
Hosted by YoCo, in partnership with YorSpace and Homebaked CLT.
Following a programme of public events launched during the 2019 York Design Week, the idea of co-owned neighbourhoods on York Central has birthed York Central Co-owned (YoCo) – a community-led initiative to create a new development on York Central, where community comes first.
We want to create brighter collective and individual happiness for people who want to live in a thriving neighbourhood and city.
Come, hear how things have developed since last year’s Design Week, what the next steps are for YoCo and how people can be involved.
We’ll also welcome our guest, Paul Kelly, from Homebaked CLT, who is coming to share the story and experiences of getting a neighbourhood project off the ground.
Homebaked CLT is a community land trust and co-operative bakery situated on the boundary between the neighbourhoods of Everton and Anfield, just opposite the Liverpool Football Club.
The project is co-owned and co-produced by people who live and work in the area.
Starting from having saved their iconic neighbourhood bakery from demolition and developed it into a thriving community-run business, with a beautiful apartment above, they are proposing to regenerate the high street ‘brick by brick and loaf by loaf’, using money that is spent in the neighbourhood to benefit their communities.
This work is based on the simple belief that we all deserve to live well. That means good jobs, secure homes, great food and welcoming spaces to meet, share stories, learn and celebrate.
