YorSpace is a group of York residents who believe that there must be a better way to address the issue of unaffordable house prices and rising rents in their city. The group have all benefited from York’s unique sense of community, but all find ourselves significantly challenged by its relative unaffordability.
Brought together by a shared desire to help put an end to this problem, the group is made up of friends and neighbours with a variety of backgrounds and whose professional experience includes everything from architecture and bioscience to writing and film-making.
Run by our active volunteer members, YorSpace is a Community led housing developer working to create more sustainable communities in York through supporting and enabling York residents to create housing projects that have environmental, social and economic sustainability at their core.
See video below for some of our Active members discussing what YorSpace is and what it means to them…
