Some of the drivers for Community Led Housing

  • Enabling people to stay close to their jobs and families maintaining social links and support.
  • Retaining employees.
  • Providing decent size functional homes which retain families in their communities and enable them to live effective lives.
  • Combatting loneliness, sharing resources
  • Protecting homes so that they benefit subsequent generations
  • Maximising affordability to free up disposable income to spend in the real economy rather than on ultra-high housing costs.
  • Developing other assets the community needs - community buildings, green spaces, food and energy production.
  • Potential to generate surpluses which can be spent on what the community needs - meals for the elderly, care services, transport
