How can planning and design collaborate to improve opportunities for affordable housing in Brighton & Hove?
This was under discussion at this community-led housing focused workshop on Tuesday 19 June. It explored aspects of community-led housing design and planning, including small homes, ‘meanwhile use’ (making use of temporarily empty buildings and sites) and cohousing design.
The speakers were:
- Daren Howarth (HUTEC designs, Earthship and Grand Designs) on small homes by choice.
- Eddie Bridgeman (MeanwhileSpace Community Interest Company, London-based) on meanwhile use.
- Jonny Anstead (TOWN, developer of Marmalade Lane Cohousing in Cambridge) on cohousing design & planning.
