The National Community Land Trust Network is calling on its members and supporters to campaign for the multi-million Community Housing Fund to be extended beyond 2019/20.
The campaign is for the Fund to be extended so that it can support community-led housing groups and the delivery of truly affordable homes in the way it was intended.
Bids for funding currently need to be in by December 2019. This tight deadline means mean fewer groups than anticipated will benefit from the Fund, jeopardising the number of homes that could be built or brought back into use.
The campaign asks:
- Extend the Community Housing Fund beyond 2020.
- Introduce a proportionate system of reistration for Registered Providers intending to provide fewer than 100 homes.
- Ensure community led housing groups aren’t thwarted by the Right to Buy and leasehold reforms.
