Community Housing Fund – feedback please?

30 July 2019

Have you had any issues in obtaining funding?

We are increasingly coming across groups who are facing hurdles in accessing the Community Housing Fund.  It seems that, in some areas, Homes England want to funnel capital funding through a local authority and require that local authority to guarantee that the development will happen.  Unsurprisingly, local authorities, however supportive of community-led housing in principle, do not feel able to guarantee a project with which they are not involved and have no control over. 

If you have come across this or any other issue we would be interested to hear from you and please email communityledhousing@wrigleys.co.uk.  Let us know your experiences and if anyone has found a resolution to the Homes England requirements of the local authority, we will spread the word.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of this article further, please contact Emma Ridge or any other member of the Community Led Housing team on 0113 244 6100.
