The cohousing project recently completed at Marmalade Lane, Cambridge, came about when the Orchard Park area of Cambridge was proposed for development. This is an excellent example of determined collaborative working with highly acclaimed results. The 42 home development has won many prestigious awards including the RICS Social Impact Award.
In this presentation and Q&A we will hear from Frances Wright, of Cambridge K1 Cohousing, and explore how community groups can work in partnership with planning authorities and developers to create inspirational housing schemes.
Target audience: LA (housing/planning) officers, developers, architects, those who may want to live in cohousing.
Solid Foundations Festival
A festival of online events showcasing local and national models of community led housing. Community Led Housing is housing which is built or brought back into use by local people, owned or managed by the community, for the community, in perpetuity. This event hosted by the Cumbria and Lancaster Community Led Housing Hub provides an opportunity to hear from and talk to some of the groups delivering inspirational housing models that challenge the status quo.
