In this post, the Homes of Our Own team discuss how Community-Led Housing presents a solution to challenges faced by communities impacted by Covid-19.
An update from the Homes of Our Own team during the current COVID-19 outbreak.
Seend Community Land and Asset Trust has submitted its Park Farm planning application for a development of one four-bed self-build house and 10 affordable houses.
Pewsey Community Land Trust has moved a step closer to its goals, with plans to build up to 26 new homes for local people.
Villagers in Seend got a final chance to have their say on plans which will see new affordable homes built there, allowing people who were born and raised locally to have a chance of getting on the housing ladder.
People who want to help get affordable homes built in their community should find the process easier with the launch of a Community Housing Advice Hub covering the county.
People priced out of being able to afford a home are being given a helping hand by villages who want to attract young families and key workers into their community.
In Wiltshire, £650,000 has been received from central government. This has allowed Community First and Wiltshire Council to join with the National CLT to form a team that can help with rural surveys, links to planners and advice on funding.
