Community-Led Housing Commission

The Housing Commission was set up by the Co-operative Councils’ Innovation Network (CCIN), led by Croydon Council, with a practical focus to encourage local authorities to foster co-operative, community-led solutions to the housing crisis.

The Commission has produced a report on why and how councils are enabling and supporting community-led housing (CLH), together with case studies on 12 local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales.

The Commission has collaborated with the Housing Associations’ Charitable Trust’s project to develop a CLH Technical Toolkit for local authorities. This is available on the Community Led Homes website.
