Co-operative Housing in Brighton & Hove
CHIBAH is a network of housing co-operatives dedicated to supporting and developing co-operative housing in the area of Brighton & Hove.
CHIBAH members seek to maintain and increase their ability to house single people and familes in need of low rent co-operatively managed housing and to undertake a programme of permanent stock development.
CHIBAH currently has 14 member housing co-operatives.
CHIBAH works with representative bodies on the local and national scene, principally the Confederation of Co-operative Housing and Community Works. Currently CHIBAH is working with Brighton & Hove Community-Land Trust (BHCLT) and Mutual Aid in Sussex (MAIS) on a new Community-Led Housing Programme, supported by Brighton & Hove City Council (BHCC).
