Amount: £33,972 grant
Approved: 2016

Rural Action Yorkshire and the North and East Yorkshire Rural Housing Enabler Network (RHE Network) were funded to explore the potential for community-led housing to be part of the solution to the shortage of affordable, good quality housing in rural North Yorkshire and East Riding.


The project considered what community-led housing might look like for this area and also assessed the appetite of rural communities to lead the delivery of affordable housing. Five pilot communities worked on bringing community-led housing to fruition in North Yorkshire and East Riding.

The project also created resources that were disseminated to other community councils across England with the intention of supporting more communities to take forward community-led housing projects.

Funding for this project was also provided by North Star Housing and the UK Cohousing Network.
