It is time to raise the profile of our activities!

In conjunction with Raise the RoofBridport Town Council  and Wessex Community Assets we will host a week, (well, 10 days) where the focus will be on all things housing.

Also check our Facebook Page for latest info @BridportACH

The overall aim of Bridport Housing Week is to identify and set in motion community-led solutions that will help solve housing poverty and provide energy efficient, truly affordable homes.

Other key objectives are:

To ‘launch’ BACH into the wider locality.
To engage with people interested in self-build and modern methods of construction.
To promote Bridport Town Council’s energy efficiency campaign.

The programme includes:

An evening Discussion Forum, with a guest speaker, to explore housing poverty solutions.
A demonstration involving local volunteers (including students) of modern design and construction methods using natural materials.

Unfortunately we have had to POSTPONE this event – but we are hoping to host a related project at the local school. The BACH Stand at the Housing Fair on the 30th October will include further information on our demonstrator project intentions.

A Housing Fair where community led and commercial organisations will ‘display their wares’ and be available to answer questions, discuss housing crisis problems and solutions.
A workshop aimed at helping home energy reduction and, importantly, reducing household energy bills.


And here is a summary of events:

Exploring community led solutions to Bridport’s housing affordability crisis.
An evening talk and discussion

Thursday October 21st, 5:30 – 7:30pm, Bridport Town Hall

The local affordability challenge for those in need of a home will be discussed and solutions explored.   A keynote speaker from the Knowle West area of Bristol will describe a novel approach to re-imagine “how to do housing”. This will be followed by a round table discussion to explore the scope for adopting similar action in the Bridport area.
