Community Housing Funding Opportunity

The Parish Council have been made aware of a funding opportunity for community groups looking to deliver affordable housing.  

Chelmsford City Council has been allocated money through the Community Housing Fund, which has been matched by money from other grants to make a total of £41,135 available to help communities create new homes for local people.  


Community-led housing is a way for residents to create their own affordable, good-quality homes. It’s designed and managed by local people and built to help the community, not for private profit. Types of community-led housing include cohousing, self-help housing, community land trusts, cooperative and tenant-controlled housing, and can include rented or shared ownership tenures.  

The Council is inviting applications from community groups for specific projects to support the development of community-led housing. The funding can be used in a number of ways including the legal and administrative costs of forming an organisation, survey or design work, or even construction costs. Funding will only be allocated to community-led affordable housing schemes which meet key criteria.  

These criteria and other further information, including how to make an application, are available on the following webpage www.chelmsford.gov.uk/communityhousing

 The deadline for submitting an application is 12pm on Friday 11 January 2019.

Austerity, Mobility and Buses in Essex

Have an opinion on buses in Essex? Whether you’re a frequent user or have never stepped on a bus before, your comments will be of much use for my research. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete!

We have received a request from Rachel Perkins, a third year undergraduate, studying Geography at the University of Cambridge based in Essex all of her life. As part of her final year, Rachel is required to undertake a research project on a Geographical topic. She is looking at the impact and perceptions of the bus network, rural and urban, across Essex. By participating in this survey, you consent to sharing your responses on the topic. The data collected will be used for dissertation purposes only and will be anonymised and  stored in a password protected file which only Rachel can access. After the project has been handed in, all data will be destroyed.

If you have any further questions about the survey or are interested in the project, please feel free to contact Rachel at busesinessexproject2018@gmail.com or via www.busesinessex.wordpress.com
