[15-09-2010] Bringing Democracy Home is the final report of the Commission on Co-operative and Mutual Housing (CCMH) which calls for every town, village and community to be able to offer co-operative and mutual housing options to potential residents. Find out what you can do to help!
[30-11-2009] The independent Commission on Co-operative and Mutual Housing launched its report Bringing Democracy Home on 24th November 2009 in Parliament at an event sponsored by the Co-operative Bank. With the support of housing minister John Healey MP, who officially launched the report, and Grant Shapps MP and Sarah Teather MP - the Conservative and Liberal Democrat Housing Spokespeople, the Commission's report calls for opportunities to live in co-operative and mutual housing to be available for all towns, villages and communities by 2030.
Nic Bliss, CCH Chair, a CCMH Commissioner, and the report's editor said that
this report could be the most significant event in co-operative housing since the CCH set up in 1994. It has been hard work producing the report, not least gathering many contributions from many housing co-op members across the country, to whom we give heartfelt thanks - but we hope that this report will lead to a lot more work to deliver on the recommendations in the report to build the co-operative and mutual housing sector.
