Strategic purpose

To deliver better access to information, support, advice and technical expertise that is needed to progress a community-led housing scheme.

Project description

Hact is creating a technical toolkit of materials that will bring together, for the first time, all the specialist documentation required to develop a community-led housing scheme into one place. It will involve the identification, collation and the production of new materials. This toolkit is targeted at professionals in local authorities who are typically working in legal, finance and planning departments and who play a critical role in enabling community-led housing schemes. The toolkit will provide them with the knowledge to engage with the community-led housing sector, by assisting in the development and delivery of community-led housing schemes.

Hact is also receiving funding from LandAid and Ecology Building Society for this project.
