Community-Led Housing for Older People and the Community Right to Build

This Housing LIN viewpoint No 40 examines community-led approaches to the provision of new housing and services for older people. It considers the potential of the Government's Localism Act 2011 and of the new Community Right to Build (CRTB) to facilitate developments of this kind. It contains a number of examples of existing and emerging schemes, some of which are considering CRTB. It stresses that this is a developing situation, which will need to be reviewed regularly.
