An event of interest is being delivered through the Homes in Community Hands programme on Tuesday 8th December 2020.
Community-led housing enabling hubs are invited to a morning event focusing on understanding local and regional government’s roles in community-led housing. This session takes place from 11:00 – 12:00 with talks on ‘where the power lies’ and ‘the opportunity with LEPs’.
Enabling hubs, local authorities, combined authorities, and LEPs are invited to an afternoon session from 13:00 – 14:30 focussing on how local and regional government can best support community-led housing. A range of talks are being held including by James Palmer, Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, and Cecilia Tredget who works on local authority engagement for Eastern Community Homes. Hubs attending the morning session are encouraged to invite their local authority/combined authority/LEP partners to find out more about how they can support community-led housing in the afternoon.
