Community Led Housing Workshop 20th February, Great Gaddesden Village Hall

“Well done, a great event, Thank you”

“Thank you for bringing the experts together for us to be better educated”

“The event highlighted the housing issues facing the country generally”

“Very well structured, great selection of relevant presentations”

 

On the 20th February, CDA Herts ran a hugely successful Community-Led Housing and Neighbourhood Planning training awareness event in Great Gaddesden on behalf of Dacorum Borough Council.   The event was organised to help raise awareness of Community-Led and rural affordable housing  among Town and Parish Councillors.

40 delegates packed out the Great Gaddesden Village Hall to learn from speakers representing The Community Land Trust, Hastoe Housing Association, Dacorum Borough Council, Thomas and Spiers Architects, Rural Community Council Essex and CDA Herts.  A highlight of the day was hearing from Paul Harris, Chairman of Great Gaddesden Parish Council about the four affordable homes recently completed in his Parish by Hastoe Housing Association as a result of a Housing Needs Survey conducted by CDA Herts.

The feedback from the event was very positive with one delegate commenting they were “Glad to be a part of such a well structured event”  and we at CDA Herts sincerely hope that it will mark a step towards many Hertfordshire rural communities addressing the ever widening housing affordability gap.
