The Parish Council can play a key role towards the development of an affordable housing scheme for their village
We believe our developments are more successful if we can forge links with the community in which they are provided. Usually, this means working closely with the local Parish Council. This involvement throughout the process helps to ensure that an accurate picture of local need is found and positive steps are taken to meet needs.
If a housing need is found then the Parish Council's local knowledge will be vital to help turn the needs evidence into a development of new homes for the village.
A Parish Council's familiarity with its area, community and history can be essential in helping a scheme to become a reality, in particular around:
- site identification
- community consultation
- scheme design
- planning application
- local connection criteria
