The Church & New Communities

the church new communitie copyHow can the Church respond to planned developments in their local community?

All across the six counties of the East of England new communities are being planned and under construction to meet the need for housing. In villages, towns and cities new developments are under way, sometimes consisting of thousands of new dwellings or in many cases just a handful. Whilst many people acknowledge the need for new homes for the young, for workers and for the homeless, large new communities are not universally popular. Whilst this guide has been prepared with the larger developments of 3000+ homes in mind, some of the principles can be applied to all new housing areas.

Revd Dr Tony Barker has produced this guide to help churches to engage with planned new housing developments in their area:
