Event description

Description

Community-led Housing Swale is a new project for the Borough; a partnership between Action with Communities in Rural Kent and Swale Borough Council. This is an afternoon event for anyone interested in finding out more about the various options for Community-Led Housing and the help that's available to set it up.

Community-led Housing can be developed by local people to provide the type of housing their community needs, including housing that is permanently affordable through Community Land Trusts (CLT), Co-operatives, Self-help Housing and Co-housing. It is housing that has been built or brought back to use by local people for the benefit of the local community. Come along to this free event and hear from experts:

  • The National CLT Network/Community Led Homes - An Overview of Community-led Housing

  • Self Help Housing - Refurbishing Vacant Properties as an Option for Community-led Housing Initiatives

  • CDS Co-operatives - The Radical History of Housing Associations and How They Can Help

  • English Rural Housing Association.- Partnerships between CLTs and Housing Associations in Rural Areas

  • Faversham CLT - Their plans and work so far

Be inspired to set up a project and network with like-minded people.
