Affordable needs a revamp
When you say 'I can afford a holiday this summer' whats does that really mean?
it doesn't mean
the travel company had a sale
you're only taking a toothbrush
It really means
You made enough money this year to go on holiday.
This is where we've gone wrong in housing.
Affordable housing doesn't mean anything if it's just what the market decides it can get away with. Affordable housing only works if priced based on what we all make.
So this is exactly what we're doing at Greenwich Citizens Housing.
The Recipe for Caring Neighbourhoods
A Caring Neighbourhood
A Space to Call
1) Home Ownership
but theres no chance for a mixed neighbourhood if the only thing neighbours have in common is the
size of their mortgage
2) Safe Neighbourhood
but with so many homes either over-crowded or divided-up for rent, finding a space-to-call-home has becomes less and less an option for people who want to stay in the area
3) A Heart for the Community
but inevitable sold on or mismanaged
if the space isn't affordable or secure
for the community itself
