Housing-led Regeneration Network Event

Theme: Housing co-operatives and community empowerment

 

Housing co-operatives are groups of people who live in and collectively manage their accommodation – from shared houses, to blocks of flats, to entire housing estates. This involves taking responsibility for arranging repairs, making decisions about rent and who joins or leaves the co-operative. Living in a housing co-operative can be a good way to get affordable housing and may give you more control over where you live. There are a number of different types of co-operative housing, either for rent or for sale, but they have one fundamental thing in common: they put democracy and community ownership at the heart of housing.

The next CREW and Community Housing Cymru Housing-led Regeneration Network meeting – which is themed on the subject of Housing Co-operatives and Community Empowerment – will take place on Thursday 12th November at Beechwood House, Beechwood Park, Newport, followed by a site visit to the Loftus Garden Village housing cooperative.
 

If you would like to attend you can book your place by completing and returning the booking form by Thursday 5th November. The cost is £22 per delegate which includes refreshments.
