We invited Notts TV to join the team at Nottingham City Homes to find out about the launch of a book called Homes and Places, covering the history of Nottingham’s council houses.
For the last decade Nottingham City Homes (NCH) has been responsible for managing council houses across the city.
As part of the events planned to mark its tenth anniversary, NCH has chosen to take a reflective look at council housing across the city by launching the first ever book of its kind.The book, which is now available to buy from Waterstones and Fives Leaves Bookshop priced £9.99, includes personal stories and memories from some of the city’s residents as well as photographs and planning documentation dating back as far as the 1800s.
Through the launch of the book, Nottingham City Homes aims to record the endeavours of those who have contributed to providing homes for Nottingham’s residents over the years. Covering key events which have impacted on housing including post-war rebuilding, high rise developments and Right to Buy.
Notts TV interviewed NCH tenant Anne Dean, author Chris Matthews and Dan Lucas from Nottingham City Homes who undertook research for the book and provided editorial support. Watch the Notts TV’s coverage below.
