A Planners Guide to Community Led Housing
Community led housing (CLH) ensures the type, tenure and design of homes meet communities’ housing needs. Drawing on the lessons learnt from others, A Planner’s Guide to Community Led Housing provides advice and case studies for those looking to support community led housing delivery through Local Plan policy, Development Management practice and Neighbourhood Plans.
Who is the guide for?
The guide is for planners, local authority housing enabling officers and anyone supporting community led housing groups in England.

The guide has been developed by Jo Lavis MRTPI, with support from Community First Yorkshire and input of urban and rural planners, in partnership with the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), the Town and County Planning Association (TCPA), National Community Land Trust Network (NCLT) and Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE). Nationwide Foundation and DEFRA provided funding for the guide’s development.
