Invitation to: Affordable Housing Seminar

Friday, 04 October 2019 15:03

Saturday, 9th November 2019, from 10am until 2pm
at Barnham Community Hall, Barnham

To tackle the challenge of providing the right homes in the right place, CPRE Sussex are holding a half-day seminar on Saturday, 9th November at Barnham Village Hall. Since Arun is facing a huge volume of new housing, we need to ensure the new homes are suitable and affordable particularly for young people, families struggling on low incomes and older residents needing to downsize and live close to amenities and services.

Many Arun residents will need truly affordable homes for rent or under shared ownership. This seminar will take a positive approach to understanding the current failures of the housing market to provide the homes people need and can afford. We will briefly examine the problems and barriers within the current system before turning to how affordable homes can be delivered.

Our speakers for the morning will include:

  • Lois Lane, formerly of CPRE National Charity, leading on affordable housing policy
  • Tom Warder, Community Led Housing Manager for Action in Rural Sussex
  • Martin Collett, Chief Executive of English Rural, a specialist provider of community-led, affordable rural homes
  • Damien Hayley, Worthing Homes – a social enterprise enabling people to live in quality homes and thriving communities
  • Lynda Ryan, Head of Community Services, Age UK for West Sussex and Gemma Hawkins, resident will give a local perspective
  • and more ….

We recommend and encourage you to stay on after the presentations to talk with and put your questions and concerns to our speakers.

Refreshments available throughout.

Please join us and book your place soon. We very much look forward to welcoming you.

Kia Trainor, Director CPRE Sussex & Michael Warden, Chair of Arun District Group
