Event description
Module 2: This 1-day workshop shares RUSS's experience of developing the vision for a 33-home community-led site at Church Grove in Lewisham

About this Event

SATURDAY March 14, 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 second 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 second module in a programme of 5, this workshop covers the actions required to take a community-led housing (CLH) project from a vision to the pre-planning stage.

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 2

- Project Design

- Accessing Land

- Feasibility & Financial Viability

- Practical exercises
