By creating genuinely affordable, healthy homes in the heart of Plymouth, our community can be part of the solution to tackle fuel poverty and climate change. This organisation is in the preliminary stages of being established.
We want to:
We want local people to help with the details: design, waste, energy, transport, food, and ownership and bring it together to shape how we make it happen!
Introducing the concept
On the 13th February, 45 people joined us to discuss how community-led housing could develop in Plymouth. PEC's CEO, Alistair, gave a presentation about our initial idea and introduced a potential new build site at Kings Tamerton. The event was a real success with participants discussing why community-led housing would be important and exploring ideas around 10 areas such as waste, energy, transport, defined by a concept called One Planet Living.
Further along the journey
We have now held a number of gatherings to establish the governance structure for the new organisation, the time line to aim towards and design working groups. We have a number of people keen to be involved with design, governance, as potential tenants, as potential investors or simply as supporters. In March 2020 we established PEC Homes as an independent community land trust, to bring forward a pipeline of locally owned, net zero affordable housing developments in and around Plymouth.
We might have already started the process but it's not too late to get involved, it will be quite a journey and this is only the beginning. We are looking for individuals and organisations from our local community to join us, you could be a potential tenant, an investor, a designer or Director or even just curious and want to be kept up to date. We want YOU to help with the details: design, waste, energy, transport, food, and ownership and bring it together to shape how we make it happen!
In March 2020, PEC Homes became an official entity, and was established as a Community Benefit Society.
