Devon Communities Together is a member of The Devon Rural Housing Partnership, a group of Local Authorities and Housing Associations working within Devon. The partnership has the combined skills to research the housing needs of communities and to work with those communities to deliver high quality, affordable housing in ways that are sympathetic to the particular needs of the community. Our Rural Housing Team has developed a tried and tested process of working closely with our partners and rural communities to deliver affordable housing. We have a programme of work with our local authorities to carry out housing need surveys and community consultation, developing strong partnerships that will increase the provision of rural, affordable homes for local people in Devon. Our clients include Parish and Town Councils, Housing Associations, Local Authorities, Community Land Trusts, self-build groups, landowners and private developers.
We are in receipt of a Community Led Homes Enabler Hub Programme Development Grant and this year are conducting a broad consultation to explore the feasibility of a Community Led Housing Hub for Devon.
