Self-build housing

March 13 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A Regency Society free event.

All are invited. No need to book.

Brighton was one of the earliest pioneers of self-build. It started in Plymouth Avenue in 1948, the first post-war self-build in the country—20 three-bedroom houses costing £1,000 each. It continued with Architype, the Hedgehog Self-Build Co-op, Golf Drive, See-Saw Way and the Bunker Housing Co-operative.

A panel of guest speakers will describe and discuss the DIY approach to housing need from Walter Segal to the activists of the present day, including the city council’s policies to enable such projects.

You can read an article about Walter Segal and self-build housing in our previous post from 2017.
