Event description
Join us to hear the story of YorSpace and help tackle the housing crisis in York.

About this Event

We all know there is a housing crisis in York with many people, especially younger families locked out of traditional home ownership. The current system is broken and there must be a better way. Step forward YorSpace with their vision of revolutionising how housing is funded, delivered and owned in York.

YorSpace is passionate about changing how house building is funded and delivered to make it fairer, more accessible, better for the environment, focussed around the needs of the community and permanently affordable. These are not just well meaning words. YorSpace have planning permission for 19 fully sustainable low carbon homes at Lowfield Green in York and for the first time are using a community share offer to raise money for homes in the community.

Join YorSpace at the launch of their community share offer and hear from residents, an investor and a similar housing group in Leeds. But most importantly of all take the opportunity to invest in a project which can help shape housing development in your city and be a beacon for future housing development. We hope you will buy shares in this exciting project for York.
