Event description
Module 3A: This 1-day workshop covers the actions required by RUSS to secure planning permission for a London community-led housing project

About this Event

SATURDAY January 11, 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 third 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 third module in a programme of 6, this workshop covers the actions required to apply for planning permission for a housing project.

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

Modules 3A and 3B are suitable for groups who have identified a site or are advanced in considering specific potential sites. They can also be helpful for those seeking to get an overview of the complete housing project, and an understanding of the different stages involved.
