Next Phase for Community Led Housing Hub development
4th March 2020
As we go to press the Community Led Housing (CLH) Hub for Cumbria and Lancaster sees the end of i's first year, and steps into another exciting phase of development! We are enormously grateful to the partners who have supported our work since March 2019 and will continue to work with all our District and Borough Council colleagues as the Hub develops and flourishes.
Since March last year we have introduced the concept of Community Led Housing to a wide audience of grassroots activists, planners and councillors all of whom are pivotal in bringing new projects to life. We’ve also been working with funders interested in helping groups to achieve their goals, and the Registered Providers who currently manage much of the affordable housing stock in the area.
We have spoken with over 500 individuals and are aware of almost 30 active community groups working to provide their own local housing solutions.
Last week we ran our first CLH Advice Surgery for groups to meet with a range of professionals and advisers.
We end this year with a high footfall event at the Cumbria Life Home and Garden Show at Rheged between 13-15 March. We’ll be sharing our enthusiasm for community led solutions with as many people as we can. Why not come along?
