Launch of the Cooperative Councils Innovation Network (CCIN) Housing Commission

Thursday 29 September marked the launch of the Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network’s Housing Commission on community-led housing.

The Housing Commission has been set up by the Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network (CCIN) and is led by Croydon Council. The aim of the Commission is to encourage and enable councils to foster and support community-led housing by setting out why councils should support community-led housing and spreading good news stories that communicate how improvement and innovative practice could be replicated across the country. It aims to develop positive responses to the latest funding and legislative challenges and current opportunities in order to show how co-operative, community-based solutions can help to boost housing supply, involve local communities, and safeguard and deliver new affordable social housing. Above all the focus of this Commission is practical – to ensure its products enable councils to encourage and support community-led housing schemes.
