Community-led Housing: a Key Role for Local Authorities
Community-led Housing: a key Role for Local Authorities by the Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network illustrates why and how municipal authorities across the UK are enabling and supporting Community-Led Housing. The Housing Commission was set up in September 2016 to encourage and enable other councils across England, Scotland and Wales to foster and support co-operative and community-led solutions to the UK housing crisis.
The report gives an introduction to community-led housing in the UK and how it comes into being, including the different types of funding available. It sets out how CLH can help local authorities achieve their strategic priorities and gives examples of how authorities can enable or support it. It also provides sources of further guidance and good practice. The report is supported by 12 case studies from England, Scotland and Wales.
The Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network was established in 2013 and comprises 22 municipal authorities from across the UK who are driving global municipal co-operative policy development with a common belief in the Co-operative Principles and Values. Membership of the Network is open to all UK Councils.
