May 2022 - Congratulations to Common Ground co-housing CLT, County Wicklow in publishing your strategic prospectus aimed at pioneering the first mutual home ownership protected affordable homes for Ireland. It has been a pleasure to get to know you all and to be able to contribute to this key stone document. Common Ground | Housing (commongroundclh.ie)

My Role - Accredited Community Led Housing (CLH) Adviser, self employed

I have worked with the Cumbria and Lancaster, Greater Manchester, Yorkshire, and Leeds Community Led Housing Hubs

CLH is about communities shaping and owning development relevant to their needs. This can be in the form of protected affordable homes, self-build or self-help housing, co-housing or combinations of these. I am based in Cumbria and work nationally. My role is to help community groups to clarify their aims and objectives, understand the development process, become organised and select project delivery methods appropriate to their 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 am currently working with new CLH organisations in Lancashire, Yorkshire, Manchester and elsewhere.


Community Led Housing includes:

  • Community Land Trusts
  • Co-operative housing
  • Group or individual self-build
  • Co-housing
  • Self-help housing
