ACRE and the ACRE Network would be delighted if you joined us in celebrating #VillageHallsWeek – starting Monday 22 January 2018. Please put the date in your diary now.
ACRE is 30 years old this year. In the company of friends, colleagues and partners we toasted the milestone last week and looked to the future.
ACRE is pleased to have been associated with the production of two useful toolkits for rural communities.
ACRE shares their Housing position paper, demonstrating support for ‘appropriate’ development of affordable housing in rural communities across England.
ACRE is working with two of its members, the Community Council for Somerset (CCS) and West of England Rural Network (WERN), to share learning and best practice with local people, community leaders, local government and academics from across Europe.
Partners including FWAG, GRCC, ACRE and others are today launching the Community Guide to Your Water Environment. This guide demonstrates a decade of learning after the terrible floods of 2007 and provides detail, advice and case studies about how communities can launch their own natural flood management work.
ACRE supports appropriate development in rural areas, especially the provision of affordable housing, so that communities can thrive.
Rural areas risk becoming ‘enclaves of the affluent’ unless the Government acts on pressing issues including the lack of affordable housing and the impact of austerity on local services, according to a coalition of 12 leading national organisations.
