Zink, the organisation that runs support services in the High Peak, has initiated the project with the acquisition of flats. With support from a consultant and East Midlands Community Led Housing, Zink is looking into setting up a Community Benefit Society to become a housing association.

Local people are invited to invest in the new organisation. These investments can be withdrawn and are subject to tax relief.

Paul Bohan, CEO of Zink, said, “A locally owned housing association enables the community to look after itself by providing good homes. We encourage anyone who is interested in investing or joining the committee to come along to the public consultation.”
