My Community

My Community offer two great step by step guides for those interested in developing Community-Led Housing. 

This is a guide for groups who are considering a particular community-led housing project and looking for practical advice on how to progress it. It can be used by new groups starting a project from scratch or by existing community groups branching out into community-led housing.

This is a guide for groups who have decided to develop a community-led housing project and are looking for practical advice on how to plan it. It can be used by newly established groups, or by existing community groups interested in branching out into the delivery of a community-led housing project.

Use it to help you with planning the detail of your project, but because all projects are different, the advice contained in this guide won’t be definitive. There will be times when you will need to seek further advice or make a judgment about something. That’s part and parcel of a community led housing project.
