Community-Led Housing Podcast

8th May 2021

CAST was delighted to welcome Susan Tron from Community Homes on the Map to speak to us and take your questions. Community-led housing enables local people to come together, purchase, and refurbish homes as a community trust, then rent them on a non-profit basis.

Maybe you’re more concerned about the growing number of empty shops in the borough? Well, Susan has a solution for that too!

Sounds interesting but does it work? Yes, it does! There are already projects up and running in Sunderland and Durham, with the group working in partnership with local councils - yes, even our very own South Tyneside Council!
