Community Led Housing
We have funding available to help local communities deliver Community Led Housing
What is Community Led Housing?
We have successfully secured £2,250,723 for 'Community Led Housing' in East Lindsey.
Community Led Housing is housing provided for the benefit of the local community. Properties will generally be affordable rent, low cost home ownership or shared ownership. These properties must be affordable and can be owned by the community, Local Authority or a Housing Association.
We have employed a Community Led Housing Facilitator who can provide advice, guidance and assistance to the community to bring forward Community Led Housing Schemes. We can help provide funding towards start-up costs involved with setting up a Community Led Scheme and we can also provide grants or loans towards the cost of the development.
We will involve the community in every step of the way by setting up working groups. These groups will help decide what property types and tenure are needed to meet the needs of the local people. They will also agree the location and number of the properties and be involved in deciding on who will benefit from the properties.
Identifying a location
If you think Community Led Housing is needed in your area or you are aware of a piece of land which may be suitable we want to hear from you. The land does not need to be a huge site, possibly large enough to accommodate between 2 and 10 properties.
We are currently working with the following communities with the aim of delivering Community Led Housing Projects in their villages:
- Sutton on Sea
- New Bolingbroke
- North Somercotes
- North Thoresby
