Trials and Tribulations of Conversion

16:00 Saturday 11 July 2015.
A report published by a north Northumberland development trust has revealed the trials and tribulations involved in a project to convert empty properties into affordable homes.

Early this year, Glendale Gateway Trust had let all nine of its affordable homes at the Wheatsheaf building on High Street and Roddam Dene House (formerly West Mansfield House) developed with Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) empty properties funding.

It followed the successful delivery of the four new housing units (library housing and 16 & 17 Butler Court) with HCA funding.

But this new project certainly had its issues and problems, as detailed in a new report by Trust chairman Tom Johnston.

Trailblazing Northumberland Trust's Work Held As Example

16:00 Saturday 01 August 2015.
Trailblazing work on a north Northumberland housing project has been applauded in national research which calls for more funding so others can follow its example.

Glendale Gateway Trust, based in Wooler, is one of just 10 projects chosen to feature in the national research by Locality, which underlines that when it comes to community-led housing, small is beautiful – and very successful.

Community organisations like Glendale Gateway Trust can and should be building their own housing, the national network of ambitious and enterprising community-led organisations stresses, after its new research found that small-scale housing is a lynchpin community activity which leads to many other local benefits.
