AFFORDABLE HOUSING TO KEEP OUR COUNTRYSIDE ALIVE (plus CPRE Somerset AGM)
2.00 – 5.00pm, THURSDAY 25th OCTOBER 2018, Glastonbury Town Hall
I am delighted to invite you to a free event organised by CPRE Somerset at 2.00pm on Thursday 25th October 2018 at Glastonbury Town Hall. We very much hope you will be able to attend – please see the bottom of this email for directions, information on transport connections and local car parks.
Our rural communities are facing a housing crisis due to a lack of genuinely affordable housing. Without them, how are our rural towns and villages going to thrive? Young people will be priced out, rural services will be lost and rural homelessness will continue to rise. We will be highlighting these issues at our event with a talk from Shaun Spiers, author of a new book - “How to Build Houses and Save the Countryside”. Our panel of speakers also includes CPRE national office, Wessex Community Assets and a local, small scale, private developer. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion and we are sure it will be an interesting and lively afternoon.
The event is open to all and free of charge so please do spread the word and tell others who may be interested in attending. I have attached a copy of our event poster – feel free to circulate this.
We hope to see you in October.
NB: Places MUST be booked in advance so we have an idea of numbers - please RSVP to this email.
