Info for Parish Counsellors
The Rural Housing Alliance has launched a Parish Councillors’ Guide to Rural Affordable Housing. The guide sets out a wide range of information, useful to Parish Councillors considering their local areas. It answers questions such as ‘what is affordable housing?’ and ‘what planning routes are available?’ as well as more detailed guidance on Rural Exception Sites and how to deliver affordable rural housing in your local area. It also includes a range of case studies to explore the issues further.
An electronic copy of the guide can be accessed here. However, we recognise that it can be really important to be able to physically hand something to Parish Councillors, rural residents, Councillors etc. when you meet them. Therefore a Flyer for the Guide has been produced that provides a flavour of the content and a link to the Guide, (a shortened version for ease of use). Click here for the flyer.
