Presented by Fair Housing for Frome.
The January episode of the aptly name ‘Housing Hub’ recorded under safe lockdown conditions, introduces our key projects like Tiny Homes and the new Homeshare Mendip scheme which launches in February. Also featured is an update from Roger Saunders from Frome Area Community Land Trust discussing their plans to build genuinely affordable homes in the town.
One of our big projects for early 2021 is revealed by Fair Housing for Frome’s development worker Steve Tanner as he talks about the all important Housing Needs Survey, a joint effort by ourselves, the Community Land Trust, Frome Town Council and Mendip District Council to get surveys out to about 13,000 households in Frome. Steve talks about this and how people can get involved and have their say.
The show also features an interview with Frome-based professional actor Dan Gaisford who discusses the work behind a project he has been involved with during lockdown. It’s called ‘Unknown’ an audio production about homelessness, which was written with the collaboration of some of Bath’s rough sleepers.
