Who will benefit from attending this event:
> 'Start Up' and developing groups, and individuals contemplating community-led housing -
This is a fantastic opportunity to visit a completed CLT, talk to trustees and residents, and inform your own group's priorities and the approach you want your project to take.
> Groups wanting to build better relationships with their local council -
While community-led housing groups may form in response to a need that isn't being met, more often than not, it is in a group's interest to have a good relationship with political decision makers. Stretham and Wilburton CLT is a great case study of a group and council working together closely for you to get tips from.
> Groups and organisations looking into the idea of forming a Community-Led Housing Hub -
The nature of this growing movement means that there is an increasing need for top-quality local enabling services across the country to ensure the best advice is available to groups. This particular event is being delivered alongside CLT East, an umbrella organisation, who have developed a solid model to support community-led housing in Cambridgeshire. Why not come along and pick their brains?
