On Monday 5 November, David Mullins, Emeritus Professor of Housing Policy presented a 36 page report of the July Hope for Housing Conference to the Steering Group of Birmingham Community Homes and to Councillor Karen McCarthy, Chair of Planning at Birmingham City Council.
The report is intended to provide a resource for organisations like Witton Lodge Community Association, who are working to promote collaboration, community empowerment and community benefit through housing.
It provides an accessible source of information on the national policy context, international models and a local vision for Birmingham Community Homes, the new enabling body set up to provide practical support to multiply community-led housing in Birmingham. It documents practitioner discussion of Dr Richard Lang’s models of co-operative capital connecting local projects to resources via hubs and multi-level support.
