September 2018 Management Committee meeting

3rd Sep 2018 7:00pm-8:00pm

The next Management Committee meeting will be held on Monday 3 September 2018 at 7.00pm in Betty's Room, EVH Office's, 5th Floor, 137 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3EW.

This month's speaker will be David Cousland from Fair Finance Agency who will give a presentation on the Ecology Building Society, a mutual based in Yorkshire that specialises in supporting properties and projects that promote sustainable communities and lifestyles.  It works with Social Landlords, not only to fund new developments but also to provide shared ownership mortgages and lend to other tenures and restrictive resale covenants that other lenders may struggle with.  It is an innovator, encouraging energy efficiency by offering a lesser rate of interest the more energy efficient the property being built or renovated.

David supports the Ecology Building Society in Scotland by raising its profile and seeking out mainly community led (housing) projects.  He has worked in sustainable banking for 20 years in England and Scotland specialising in lending to communities and values-driven businesses, supporting people in realising the vision they have for their projects.
