Event description

Description

Join us as we explore the opportunities, potential and challenges of community led housing in Surrey.

Up and down the country more and more communities are successfully completing housing schemes that provide affordable homes for local people. We’ll discuss the support, resources and funding available to help community groups form and develop housing. Community led housing can include Community Land Trusts (CLTs), Co-Housing, Co-Operative Housing and Self-Build.

The event will include speakers from the National Community Land Trust Network, Wickham Community Land Trust (who have successfully developed affordable housing for Wickham villagers), Surrey Community Action and a co-operative in Brighton.

Subjects covered will include:

  • Overview of Community Led Housing
  • Stories of community led housing development
  • Forming a group and engaging the community
  • Funding & finance
  • The development process
  • Working with a Housing Association

The events are organised by the Surrey Community Housing Partnership, a partnership between Surrey Community Action and eight Surrey boroughs and districts. The partnership’s purpose is to promote and support community led housing in Surrey. The districts and boroughs involved are Elmbridge, Epsom & Ewell, Guildford, Mole Valley, Surrey Heath, Tandridge, Waverley and Woking.

This event is for people from Elmbridge, Guildford, Surrey Heath, Waverley and Woking. Click here to register for the event for people from Epsom & Ewell, Mole Valley and Tandridge.
