About the event

In 2018 we launched our Commission Report on Community-Led Housing, that work was led by Croydon Council, and many of our Members at that time were engaged in its development.  Colleagues at the Confederation of Co-operative Housing (CCH) are inviting CCIN Members to participate in a new Local Authority Group which has been set up to enable promotion of and dialogue about community-led housing. 

The group is free to join, and they are keen to involve as many local authorities as possible.  42 local authorities have already signed up and representation is possible through members and officers, the full list is attached.

With an overall aim of enabling the delivery of more successful community-led housing developments, the Group’s aims have been identified as providing a local authority forum to:

  • share ideas and information about community-led housing;
  • to encourage and support more local authorities to facilitate community-led housing;
  • and to discuss how community-led housing can become a part of local authority housing strategies.
