6 Steps To Build Community Wealth
Using what we already have to generate local economic growth co-operatively.
Colerne Parish Neighbourhood Plan:
A Neighbourhood Plan will enable our community to play a much stronger role in shaping the area in which we live and work and in supporting new development proposals. Unlike the parish, village or town plans that we have been involved in preparing, a Colerne Parish Neighbourhood Plan will form part of the County Development Plan and will sit alongside the Local Plan prepared by the local planning authority. The Local Plan and the Neighbourhood Plan will be used in making any planning decision for our parish.
Marshfield Community Trust
BATH COOPERATIVE ALLIANCE
A group has recently formed in Bath interested in alternative models of ownership and cooperative ways of working. We are planning to invite speakers along to talk to us about co-operative enterprises.
Marshfield Community Land Trust Talk
Our first speakers are from Marshfield where locals have set up a Community Land Trust (CLT) with the aim of building low rent houses that will enable young people to stay in the area thus strengthening the community.
A CLT enables land to be bought and kept in community ownership in perpetuity, passed down through the generations. Houses are sold or rented out at a rate that is linked permanently to local incomes.
Thursday November 30th, 7.30 pm, Oriel Hall, Larkhall, Bath
