Affordable Housing in North Horsham

Affordable housing in North Horsham – how can we help?
The Parish Council is acutely aware of the lack of realistic, affordable housing in North Horsham and over the last few months a group of parish councillors and residents have been investigating how affordable housing could be provided through the formation of a Community Land Trust. A Community Land Trust is a legal entity in its own right and it makes its own decisions. Its’ board is usually populated by local people and it can hold an asset locked for community use in perpetuity. A Community Land Trust can buy or acquire land to build affordable houses or convert an existing building to provide affordable accommodation at rents which are realistically affordable to its community.
Please let us know if you are interested in helping to form a Community Land Trust for North Horsham.
There is more information about Community Land Trusts on the Parish Council website, or you can contact the Clerk. Responses to this request will be considered by the Parish Council and only if there is sufficient support will it move forward.
