Ambitions to increase affordable rural housing
Members of NALC are being invited to support the recently launched National Housing Federation’s 5-star plan for rural housing, which succinctly sets out an ambition to increase the supply of affordable rural homes.
The plan contains five key points advocating increased investment, innovation and partnership working with local communities. The overarching principle is to secure a fair deal for rural communities from housing associations and all the partners who work with them.
To ensure success, the 5-star plan needs a broad base of support from those who recognise the importance of delivering affordable rural homes for local people.
NALC along with other national rural advocates have signed-up to support this ambition. Cllr Sue Baxter, chair of NALC, said: “ The National Association and its membership are fully aware of the supply problems of affordable rural housing. So we want to change this situation and hence why we have signed to this plan. We also encourage all our members to sign up to this essential 5-star plan.”
