RUSS Webinars: Module 2: Getting Moving…finding a viable site.
Sat 27th February
10:30 am - 1:00 pm
RUSS is a volunteer-led Community Land Trust based in south London, founded in 2009 with the mission of creating sustainable neighbourhoods and genuinely affordable homes. In June 2018, RUSS was granted planning permission for 33 homes at Church Grove, Ladywell, south east London. It will be London’s largest affordable self-build housing project.
RUSS has set up a School of Community-led Housing offering individuals, community groups and housing professionals the chance to learn from RUSS’s many years of experience and gain information about how to set up and develop a community-led housing project.
Topics for this Workshop:
– Project design and stages
– Accessing Land and land agreements
– Feasibility & Financial Viability of a project and site
RUSS team for the day:
Chris Carthy, Architect and former RUSS project manager
Anurag Verma, Architect and RUSS Chair
Moderator: Cypren Edmunds, RUSS member, events organiser & communications
This session covers the actions required to take a community-led housing (CLH) project from a vision to the pre-planning stage, focussing particularly on the feasability and viablity of the Church Grove project, and how this can be applied by others on similar projects. The content is most suitable for those with a specific site in mind, or in the process of researching and assessing a number of sites.
