Community led housing and the role of housing associations
This guidenote is for people, who are interested in setting up or becoming part of a community led housing project and who would like to understand and consider the role that a housing association might be able to play in supporting or enabling such a project.
The guidenote assumes that you have already considered the benefits of community-led housing and that you already have some ideas about the type of community-led housing that might meet your needs. You may have thought about funding in general terms or whether you might pursue the project through a Community Right to Build Order for example
The guidenote also assumes that you have shared your ideas with other people and that you have either formed a community group to pursue your project or you are thinking about doing so.
