Community-led Housing Conference

Tuesday 25th September – 09:45-14:30

Join us to hear more about how local people can play a leading and lasting role in solving local housing problems, creating genuinely affordable homes and strong communities in ways that are difficult to achieve through mainstream housing. The Agenda will explore the transformational potential of Community Led housing and the practicalities of achieving a successful project, from finance and governance to community engagement.

This event will be of interest to community housing groups, district and county councillors, planning, housing and community development officers, neighbourhood planning groups, developers, land agents, architects – and anyone involved or interested in the promotion and planning of community-led housing projects.

The event is being coordinated by Community First Oxfordshire on behalf of the Rural Community Councils in the Thames Valley: Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

The event will take place near High Wycombe at Radnage Village Hall, 2 Green Lane, Radnage HP14 4DD. A light lunch will be provided. If you have any specific dietary requirements, please highlight them when you complete your booking form.
