Vital support available to provide affordable Community Housing to provide for the needs of local residents.

17th September 2020

Humber & Wolds Rural Action (HWRA), a charity that supports rural communities in East Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire, is working with East Riding of Yorkshire Council to tackle the problems of providing local housing for local people at an affordable price.

If your community is worried about whether local residents can continue to afford to live in your area, then we can help you explore options to meet your community’s housing needs. This is people-powered housing in action where local homes are firmly in the hands of community ownership.

Is your village lacking homes for younger residents, both single and families or for long term residents that are looking to downsize? Then, Community-Led Housing could offer a solution.

HWRA is working to raise awareness of, and enthusiasm for, Community-Led Housing among East Riding of Yorkshire community groups, parish councils, landowners or anyone with a local interest. Over the last 2 years we have helped 9 communities to identify opportunities worth investing in and encourage groups to consider building and owning their own homes using the available funding.

A number of groups have acquired funding from the Community Housing Fund, run by East Riding of Yorkshire Council. The funding is available in three stages. Communities who are not sure if there is a need for this type of housing locally, can apply for Stage 1 funding of up to £4000, to run engagement and consultation exercises to explore options for developing affordable housing that exactly matches the needs of their community.

Humber & Wolds Rural Action will also work with local councils, housing providers, the North Yorkshire and East Riding Community-Led Housing Hub (The Hub) and other stakeholders to provide ongoing community led housing support and advice. The Hub will lead on technical support matters such as legal advice, architectural, finance and other professional services.

Humber & Wolds Rural Action is also happy to help support Community-Led Housing interest in North and North East Lincolnshire.
