We have a proposal which has been well received by members of the local authority (CWaC).
We atended a CLT conference in Nov 2013 which was excellent. However to access grants to bring us to the point of build one has to involve local people in some way who are going to live next to our housing co-op. We need the LA to help us earmark land for a small development. Without this we cannot proceed. We do not want to live in the area where we are now living. We do not have money to buy expensive development land. In fact we are hoping we can lease the land for 20 years with an option to buy at the end. My augument is that our development would ultimately dsave the Council money not least on Housing Benefit! A copy of our proposal attached thanks
