Event description

Description

Your chance to ask candidates in May’s council elections about their policies on community-led development.

In May 2019 Brighton & Hove will get the chance to elect 54 representatives onto Brighton & Hove City Council (BHCC). Where do the candidates and parties stand on community-led housing and Community Land Trusts? Find out from those representing the four main political parties in Brighton & Hove at our hustings event on Wednesday 27 March, 6.30 – 8.00pm at the University of Brighton, on Edward Street, Brighton.

The speakers will be:

  • Councillor David Gibson, Green Party
  • Councillor Tracey Hill, Labour Party
  • Councillor Mary Mears, Conservative Party
  • Duncan Moore, Liberal Democrat

Brighton & Hove Community Land Trust (BHCLT) is a membership organisation made up of local people who are concerned about the housing crisis and want to make constructive steps to end it. We want to make housing and land in the city genuinely affordable for now and future generations.

Through BHCLT, there are many groups of people in Brighton & Hove working on community-led housing projects which will do just that. These include co-operatives, cohousing and self-build (whether you are doing it with your own hands or contracting the work out), all developed through local people working together.

How will our candidates support community-led housing in our city? This event will allow some of them to debate policies, air their views and answer questions from the audience.

Find out more about local elections, including how to register to vote, at the BHCC website.
