Hi,

I was wondering how people/communities get started with Community Housing Projects? Housing is a big issue in my area, particularly availability of affordable family housing, but I’m pretty sure my community are unaware of their right to build community led housing. We are just about to embark on a Neighbourhood Plan so I’m hoping that this issue might be tackled as part of that.

The other issue is bringing back into use long term empty or derelict houses. How would the community begin to tackle this? What are the first steps?

Many thanks,

Natalie
