“This event is aimed at community organisations who are interested in community-led housing a
nd who may have thought about initiating a community-led housing project and need support to get started, or are curious and would like to find out the possible routes to initiating and progressing a community-led housing project. You might have some spare land that might be suitable for community-led housing or you are thinking about redevelo
ping your building and would like to include a housing element. There might be empty properties or sites in your area, and you would like to find out how your organisation can develop affordable housing that meets the needs of local people.”
The Plunkett Foundation will be holding a Lunch and Learn session on 30th September 12-1:30pm. (Free for Plunkett members).
“The workshop will introduce you to community-led housing and help you think about initiating your own project.
