City as Resource: Housing

City as Resource: Housing

The second of Bluecoat’s City as Resource events focused on housing, taking Granby Four Streets Community Land Trust (CLT) as its case study. Granby Four Streets comprises Beaconsfield Street, Cairns Street, Jermyn Street and Ducie Street, located in the heart of Liverpool 8, close to Princes Park.  Michael Simon, a sociologist and the CLT’s coordinator, gave some background to the area; it has long been multicultural, with a historic Jewish presence and Caribbean communities settling in these and surrounding streets since the mid-20th century. The area went into decline in the 1970s and ’80s, with poverty and unemployment rife, disinvestment in public services and tensions with authorities over racial profiling, including the notorious Toxteth riots of 1981.
