YorSpace is a Community Benefit Society and Community Land Trust. It was created to begin a revolution in how housing development and home ownership is viewed and funded. It was born out of a desire to challenge the lack of affordable, environmentally sustainable housing in York, that is truly centered on the needs of the community. Their ambition is to create truly community-led housing that harnesses funding from the community to improve accessibility to ownership for local people.
Registered Society founded 2017
YorSpace is pioneering a model that will create sustainably built and permanently affordable homes while also allowing people to come together and create their own communities. Read more
