Connecting Communities in Berkshire are running a short course on Community-led housing on Thursday 19th September.
We are aware that development and new houses are currently being built throughout Berkshire on a large scale but are they really affordable or accessible to people growing up or working in your village or community?
Community-led housing is housing built on a not-for-profit basis by a community to meet its own needs. There are a number of different approaches to community-led housing, all resulting in homes built for the community but with different processes and levels of involvement.
This short course will enable participants to understand the differences between the various models of community-led housing. It is aimed at Parish & Town Councillors, land owners and anyone from both rural and urban communities interested in exploring the options for providing affordable housing for people with a connection to their community. The options of rural exception sites is now quite well-known but at this session we will examine the details of this as well as delving into other options including community land trusts and housing co-operatives.
