Coin Street Community Builders

We are a social enterprise and our aim is to make our neighbourhood a great place to live, work in, and visit. Coin Street Community Builders (CSCB) has transformed a largely derelict 13 acre site into a thriving mixed use neighbourhood by creating new co-operative homes; shops, galleries, restaurants, cafes and bars; a park and riverside walkway; sports facilities; by organising festivals and events; and by providing childcare, family support, learning, and enterprise support programmes. Income is generated from a variety of sources including the hire of retail and catering spaces, event spaces, meeting room spaces and conference venue spaces as well as the provision of consultancy services.

CSCB is a company limited by guarantee established by local residents in 1984 following a campaign against large scale office proposals. The company is controlled by a Board, elected by CSCB members. Only people living locally can become CSCB members.
