Andy Lloyd

Community Led Homes Accredited Adviser

A+ R A-

Article Index

I am an accredited community led housing (CLH) adviser affiliated to the National Community Land Trust Network based in Cumbria and working nationally. CLH advisers help community groups to deliver their vision for local housing projects, whether via partnership arrangements with Housing Associations or independently. They do this by providing workshops and training to clarify the vision and objectives, provide an overview of the development process, ensure good organisation and select delivery methods appropriate to community capacity.

My background is as a Rural Housing Enabler in the South of England, then Community Land Trust Development Officer in Cumbria where I assisted the Lyvennet Community Trust, Keswick Community Housing Trust and other CLTs. I served as a board member of the National CLT Network up to 2015 and was a consultee for the Community Land Trust Handbook and the Scottish Rural Housing Service Community Bonds Handbook. I helped advise Local Authorities in Lancashire and Cumbria on the implementation of the first CLH fund and have supported CLH Hubs in Cumbria, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Manchester and elsewhere.

October 2022

Even though the Community Housing Fund has ended  there are still potential sources of funding to cover setup and predevelopment of community housing projects. Check with your CLH adviser or local Hub (clhhub.org.uk). 

Congratulations Lune Valley CLT and South Lakes Housing on the iminent completion of 20 affordable passive house homes!
