Over the Autumn 2020, OCLT have put on a series of online events looking at land rights, housing issues and community-owned solutions. You can watch the recordings and check out the slides if you missed them below…
Planning Reform: The impact on meeting Oxford’s housing need
This webinar explored what the Government’s “Planning The Future” White Paper will mean for community-led and affordable housing in Oxford with: Professor Sue Brownill (OCLT & Oxford Brookes University), Councillor Alex Hollingsworth (Oxford City Council) & Peter Thompson (Oxford Civic Society).
PUSH Online Film Showing
Participants had the opportunity to watch the award-winning PUSH documentary from director Fredrik Gertten, investigating why we can’t afford to live in our own cities anymore. If you missed it you can still watch it here.
Why can’t we afford to live in Oxford?
In our follow-up event to our online film showing of PUSH, we brought campaign groups and land right organisations Oxfordshire Community Land Trust, Oxford Against Schwarzman and Oxford Tenant’s Union together to reflect on the issues raised by the film and how this relates to housing in Oxfordshire.

Boats & Coops: What if moorings were community-owned?
At this event we asked - could more affordable, cooperative residential moorings be the answer to Oxford’s housing crisis? We heard from Surge Cooperative, a group aiming to create community-led moorings for larger boats in East London, and Mark Simmonds from Coop Culture, who supported a boaters coop in Calderdale to set up. Co-hosted with the Collaborative Housing Hub.
