James Newton

Freelance Design Consultant & Community Housing Advisor in York United Kingdom

James is a freelance Architectural Design Consultant with expertise in low carbon, bio-based construction methods & community led projects. For over ten years I worked for Native Architects where I delivered a range of environmentally conscious residential, commercial and community projects.

I’m a founder member & former Director of SBUK and I’ve trained in sustainable building as a student with the School of Natural Building.

In 2014, I co-founded YorSpace; a Community Land Trust that’s bringing a fairer kind of housing to York by creating financially & environmentally sustainable, community led homes. As well as being Director of YorSpace, I’m a Community Led Housing Advisor working with Leeds Community Homes.
