Event description
Module 1: This 1-day workshop shares RUSS's experience of creating the organisation behind a 33-home community-led housing project in London

About this Event

SATURDAY February 8, 2020

RUSS is a volunteer-led Community Land Trust based in south London, founded in 2009 with the mission of creating sustainable neighbourhoods and genuinely affordable homes.  In June 2018, RUSS was granted planning permission for 33 homes at Church Grove, Ladywell, south east London. It will be London's largest affordable self-build housing project. 

RUSS has set up a School of Community-led Housing offering individuals, community groups and housing professionals the chance to learn from RUSS’s many years of experience and gain information about how to set up and develop a community-led housing project.

This one-day workshop is the first module in our education programme, through which we share our experience and learning since setting up the organisation as a Community Land Trust in 2009.  The first module in a programme of 5, this workshop covers the actions required to set up a community-led housing (CLH) project from the very start.

Our workshops are informal and interactive, with practical exercises, and time to meet like-minded people, housing professionals and groups already involved in CLH projects.

Topics for this Workshop: Module 1

- Creating a group

- Legal structures

- Introduction to Land

- Working with Local Authorities

- Introduction to Project Finance

- RUSS Right Now

Module 2: Getting Moving...finding a viable site will run on Saturday 14 March 2020.

Module 3A: Getting Permission...securing planning permission will repeat on Saturday 25 April, and (to be confirmed) Module 3B: Getting Serious...preparing to start on site will run on Sunday 26 April 2020.
