We are supporting The National Community Land Trust Network campaign to extend the Community Housing Fund for five years in the Spring Budget, which will take place on Wednesday 11 March 2020. We want to see community led housing to become a mainstream housing option that is available to people across the country.
The Fund has helped to create a pipeline of over 16,600 homes, but community groups will struggle to realise their plans if it is not extended beyond March 2020.
Envisaged as a five-year fund, delays have meant the Homes England part of the Fund was only open to bids for 18 months.
The Government has committed to supporting community housing in its manifesto and should now deliver on this promise.
