Welcome to the holding page for Community Led Homes, North Yorkshire and East Riding.
We are in the process of developing a new website. Until then, please see below for contact details, forthcoming workshop dates, and further resources to help you on your Community Led Housing journey.
As the new hub for the region we are here to:
Promote community led housing and its benefits to all potential stakeholders and deliver activities and workshops to interested communities
Be the central point of information for the development of affordable, sustainable homes, throughout North Yorkshire & East Riding. In turn allowing community led housing to be seen as a realistic, viable and achievable option for housing and communities throughout the region
Be ambassadors for community led housing, locally, regionally and nationally.
The Hub takes a collaborative approach, working with stakeholders to provide effective solutions for communities to help them deliver affordable homes for local people. We do this through partnership building, connecting people, training and promoting action to build local homes for local people.
Individuals and communities across the region can access local 1-2-1 specialist support encompassing all stages of a community led housing project, from community engagement right through to build and live stage. This enables communities to make an informed choice around all forms of community led housing and deliver the scheme that best meets the needs of their community.
Parish councils, community groups, land owners, or anyone interested in community led housing can find out how to develop affordable community housing at our workshops. These free workshops are divided into the six key areas of Community Led Housing:
