Across the County, there is a lack of affordable housing to rent or buy in many villages. This causes hardship for people of all ages, from young people just starting out on an independent life, to older people who have lived in a village all their lives but whose growing frailty means they can no longer manage in their current home.
Affordable housing is the lynchpin of a thriving rural community. The homes are lived in by people who work in local businesses and provide custom for local services that keeps them viable.
At this online session you will:
- Hear about rural affordable housing in more depth and how rural exception sites can be used to develop affordable housing for local people in perpetuity;
- Discover how Cambridgeshire ACRE can work alongside local councils to deliver the homes their community needs; and
- Learn how your parish council can start its own affordable housing journey and hear from a local council that has already been through the journey.
