Ecomotive applied for funding to Power to Change to set up a Bristol Community Led Housing Hub in collaboration with a core group made up of Keith Cowling from Bristol CLT, Melissa Mean from Knowle West Media Centre and Helen Bone from Vivid Regeneration.
We are in the early stages of the development having been informed of the funding in early June 2017.
Our first steps are to assess the hurdles and barriers that groups across the city and the wider region are experiencing, so that the hub can focus on providing the right advice and sign posting to the best expertise.
We will also be supporting the city council in the creation of some form of community led housing policy/land allocation policy, with the aim that it becomes easier for local groups and community organisations to access/purchase sites made available by the council.
