Housing Taskforce hears from the National Community Land Trust Network in Parliament

The National Community Land Trust Network is leading a workstream on new sources of supply as part of the National Housing Taskforce, a coalition convened by the All Party Parliamentary Group for Housing and Planning and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

The Government could unlock the supply of tens of thousands of new homes a year from small, self, custom and community builders, according to our inquiry into new sources of housing supply.

Helen Hayes MP, chair of the inquiry, said:

"There is clearly a huge amount of enthusiasm and innovation among small, self, custom and community builders. But our inquiry is uncovering a long list of barriers that are frustrating their efforts, whether it's acquiring land, getting to site, accessing finance, or even just starting up a new community-led housing organisation.
