Middlehaven

Middlesbrough Council and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) have exciting plans to get local people, businesses and developers to build their own homes and offices in Middlehaven, Middlesbrough. This innovative custom-build Urban Pioneers Project takes a bottom-up approach, which relies on a group of people (the 'Urban Pioneers') creating spaces and accommodation, primarily for their own use. The two custom-build sites will be on either side of Cleveland Street in Middlehaven and will have frontage onto an attractive new Urban Park. The Council and HCA believe this opportunity would appeal to creative people.

For those that are potentially interested in custom-build schemes, you are invited to the HCA's Custom Build / Self-Build Event supported by Fabrick Housing Group and Middlesbrough Council. The event will be an excellent opportunity to find out more about Custom / Self-Build, in particular the growth of Custom Build on the continent, the growing interest in the UK, government policy, potential sources of finance, more information on the Urban Pioneers Project and examples of success stories. Please see the attached agenda.

The event will be held at Fabrick’s Head Offices in Middlehaven, Middlesbrough and will run from 9.45am to 3.30pm on Tuesday 29 January 2013. Click here for a map of the venue.

Numbers are limited so please can you confirm your attendance by 18 January 2013 to vashika.ramcharan@hca.gsi.gov.uk as well as any dietary requirements you may have for the buffet lunch provided. As spaces are limited we would appreciate it if you could limit the number of people attending from your organisation to two.
