Alternative Models of Ownership: Risks and opportunities for the community-led housing movement

Friends Meeting House, Manchester

CLES CEO Neil McInroy joins Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and MP for Salford and Eccles Rebecca Long-Bailey, and UK Cohousing Network Director Stephen Hill to discuss the community-led housing movement in this event hosted by Housing Futures.

The evening of discussion and debate will explore, amongst others, the following themes:

  • What does Labour’s Alternative Models of Ownership report and new financing from the current Conservative administration mean for the community-led housing movement?
  • How far do these moves signify a cross-party moment of political opportunity or is recent rhetoric likely to result, in reality, in watered down versions of community ownership and governance?
  • How can we ensure that new agendas for greater community leadership and control remain substantive and are provided with the necessary levels of investment and support infrastructure?
  • Which of these alternative models are most likely to sustain themselves over time and have the potential for scaling up?
