Hi I am a Director of a local community interest company that is considering community led housing allocation as part of a Neighbourhood Plan. What are the main issues that we will face and is there any support available to projects that are new to CLH.
Steve?

How to start a community led housing project is the subject of a very good toolkit which you can find here. http://mycommunity.org.uk/resources/community-led-housing-toolkit-1-how-to-get-your-project-up-and-running/

Essentially, the main issues are around the securing of land, and the funding and finance package needed to support your project.

If you have a basic idea f what you want to achieve and have identified some land, you could potentially apply for Community Buildings Pre-feasibility funding of up to £10,000 to help you scope out the project and decide on its viability. Find more about this here. http://mycommunity.org.uk/programme/community-housing/?_a=funding
