Community Land Scotland

Community housing: Built with love

Join Community Land Scotland and four guests speakers, Hugh Ross – Staffin Community Trust, Julia Muir Watt – All Roads Lead to Whithorn, Helen MacDonald – Mull and Iona Community Trust, to hear about how each of these organisations developed their housing plans, how they acquired funding for the build, the hurdles they faced, their experience of working with contractors, the process of getting tenants for the houses and all the benefits that community owned housing has brought to their communities. We will also be hearing from Linsay Chalmers of Community Land Scotland about learning on urban community housing from England. The event will be chaired by Mike Staples, Chief Executive of South of Scotland Community Housing.
