Community Housing

Community Housing

A warm welcome from the Trimingham Community- Led Housing Steering Group. We are passionate about our village and bringing new affordable homes to local people who are finding it hard to remain living here or want to return to live in our community.

In Nov 2017 North Norfolk District Council held a public consultation inviting Trimingham residents to come along and find out more about Community-Led Housing and what this could mean for our village. We heard how local people are being affected by the impact of the second and holiday home market in our area. House prices are, or are rapidly becoming, unaffordable for those living and working in our community and there is little affordable housing available. We also heard how the community could work together to address this problem and how new affordable homes could be built in Trimingham.

Following this consultation a meeting was held in May 2018 inviting those that were interested in finding out more about Community-Led Housing. Those who wanted to continue to explore options for this project came together the following month and formed our Steering Group. We started to meet regularly and now as of this year meet monthly.

We have kept you informed about the project through the Trimingham Newsletter. We will continue to do this but also now have this dedicated webpage where you can find the minutes of our meetings.

Your Trimingham Steering Group are: Terry Brown, Phil Berry, Colin Dash, John Harrod, Pamela Hill, Elizabeth King and Andrea Osbourne. At present you can contact us via Anna Clarke at NNDC via: anna.clarke@north-norfolk.gov.uk   We do hope to have a direct e mail address in the future and of course if you see us out and about please feel free to catch us for a chat.
