Event Information

Community-led housing virtual social

Thursday 20th May, 2021 |
This social will take place via zoom. Joining instructions will follow from our events team one day before the event.

Free to attend

Join us on Thursday 20 May  for our latest virtual community-led housing social.  As well as offering groups a chance to chat to each other in an informal environment, we’ll be joined by representatives from two existing CLH groups who will talk through the challenges they’ve faced at pre-development and development stages of their project:

  • Holme House Farm is a rural cohousing scheme in Cumbria, being developed by our own Laura Moss, a partner in our CLH team.  They’ve just received planning permission after over a year of waiting.  She’ll talk through some of the pre-development challenges the group have faced.
  • Chapeltown Cohousing is a mixed tenure cohousing scheme in inner city Leeds.  They’ll explain how they have overcome various obstacles during the development stage of their project, not least how they coped when, mid-development, their main developer went into administration. 

It would be lovely to see you there.  Register in advance using the link below.
