What is community-led housing? What are the practicalities of helping communities build genuinely affordable homes?
Interest in community-led housing is growing in North Yorkshire. The government’s Community Housing Fund and other resources are now available to help increase the number of affordable homes developed by communities themselves.
Making the most of these opportunities is vital to helping communities solve housing problems by creating homes that local people can afford to live in.
Community First Yorkshire and Humber & Wolds Rural Action (HWRA) are hosting a FREE conference which will provide an insight into the local, community and national perspective on community-led housing.
Find out about practical planning and land solutions that could kick-start a community-led housing project in your area.
Hear how a local community built their own affordable homes.
This event will provide free Continuing Personal Development (CPD) for surveyors.
