Homebaked Community Land Trust

Homebaked Community Land Trust (CLT) sits on the boundary between the neighbourhoods of Everton and Anfield in Liverpool, just opposite the Liverpool Football Club. It is co-owned by people who live and work in the area. Its sister organisation is Homebaked bakery, a thriving community-run business famous for its excellent pies and bread. Both organisations grew from '2up2down', which URBED were involved in as designers and workshop facilitators in the early 2010s. Since then Homebaked have worked - 'brick by brick and loaf by loaf’ - to save their iconic neighbourhood bakery from demolition and develop it to house the bakery and affordable residential accommodation. Its work is based on the simple belief that we all deserve to live well. 

In autumn 2018 the CLT invited URBED to work with them to develop plans for the next phase of their work, refurbishing the terrace of houses next to the bakery as part of longer-term aims to regenerate the local high street. We're using a participatory process - working with the CLT board, Homebalked stakeholders and local people - to develop designs for housing, business and community space within the block. This development will create affordable accommodation and space for people to come together, linked to the bakery building and the surrounding public spaces. We will be using our retrofit expertise to turn the 100 year-old terrace into a comfortable, warm and light-filled space that is environmentally responsible - enabling its residents to live well.
