Description

Event Overview

Community Led Housing (CLH) is nothing new, but the sector is currently going through significant changes and is on the cusp of major expansion. With major national investment by the Government and other funders; new resources to help provide expert support; and a new national accredited training programme, now is the time to embrace those changes and help build the next generation of community led homes.

  • But what is community led housing?
  • Why is it important?
  • Who’s already doing it and how?

Join us at our free event to find out about the potential that community led housing has to tackle a dysfunctional housing market, and how you can get involved and become part of this rapidly growing movement.

Speakers include:

  • Tom Chance, The National Community Land Trust Network;
  • Blase Lambert, The Confederation of Cooperative Housing;
  • Ann Seipp, Homes England;
  • Examples of community led housing projects.

By attending you will find out about:

  • Different models and approaches to community led housing
  • Routes to delivery: new start-ups, existing bodies, developer-led, new build, redevelopment of existing stock and partnership options
  • Funding opportunities, including the Government’s Community Housing Fund
  • How Local Authorities can facilitate and support community led housing
  • Guidance on planning for community led homes
  • The new national accredited training programme

This event is aimed at professionals and community champions with an interest in housing, planning and development e.g. Local Authorities (officers and elected members), Housing Associations, community organisations, developers, independent consultants, housing enablers, architects, surveyors, solicitors, land owners, land agents and neighbourhood plan groups.
