‘Landmark’ £100m fund part of raft of measures addressing housing crisis
Housing secretary James Brokenshire has announced a £100 million-plus fund to support self-builders who are developing genuinely affordable housing.
The Community Housing Fund is likely to help existing groups like RUSS in south-east London, whose Architype-designed scheme won planning last month, and London CLT, which is has been chosen to deliver housing on two TfL sites and which recently submitted Archio-deigned plans for a third site to Lewisham council.
The cash will also enable the creation of more groups that develop community-led housing which will mean more work for architects, said Tom Chance, director of the National CLT Network.
“This is a landmark moment for the movement. There is real belief that it’s a movement on the cusp of going mainstream,” he said.
