Bringing community led housing to fruition
Help us make affordable housing a reality before The Australian Dream becomes an urban myth…
Hello and welcome to Grounded’s first enews! We have had an incredible first 12 weeks with some big wins we want to share with you at our launch event:
Grounded is mobilising to safeguard land for future generations via Community Land Trusts. Holding the land in trust allows homebuyers greater flexibility, affordability and financial freedom.
Join us on the night for an array of speakers as we join forces with those looking to make housing hopeful. Grab a free ticket here, with a zoom feed for interstate supporters.
Last Friday was grand final day for housing economists as the National Accounts revealed another year where land prices grew beyond belief, with national land prices increasing by $994 BILLION to June ’22. Based on past averages, this was double our expectation. But no news media picked it up?!!
Consider how much housing we could fund if just some of this increase was channelled towards CLTs? That’s the sort of advocacy work we will be engaging in as we push the need of CLTs as a vital housing model in between renting and buying.
As you can see below in our 1st infographic, we are working hard to clarify what a CLT is and how it can help your people. Watch out for our new website, which should go live in the next week.
Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you on the 22nd at the Queen Vic Women’s centre.
Karl Fitzgerald and the team at Grounded.
