GRCC Community-led Housing Event for Stroud

3rd October 2018 from 14.00 - 17.30

Stroud Subscription Rooms

The purpose of this event is to raise awareness of the community-led housing development approach and highlight the benefits of delivering affordable housing for local people in your community.  Different types and approaches will be explored and you will hear about examples of local community-led housing projects.  The announcement of a new phase of the government's Community Housing Fund programme is a great opportunity for groups in Stroud District to take their ideas and projects forward over the next three years.

Agenda:

  • Introduction to Community-led Housing (CLH) - Lois Taylor, GRCC
  • Working with Registered Providers - Maureen Margrie, Chief Executive of Cirencester Housing
  • CLH in Stroud District: Eastington Community Land Trust (ECLT) - Tom Low, Chair of ECLT
  • Community Housing Fund - Matt Dodd, Homes England
  • How neighbourhood development plans can help make a case for CLH - Barbara Pond, GRCC
  • Discussion groups
