Parish Councillors’ Guide to Affordable Rural Housing

The Rural Housing Alliance have published an Affordable Rural Housing Guide for Parish Councillors

Published by the Rural Housing Alliance, which works in partnership with the Rural Services Network and National Housing Federation, this is a group of housing associations that develop and manage affordable homes in rural areas across England.

The guide sets out a wide range of information, useful to Parish Councillors considering their local areas.  It answers questions such as ‘what is affordable housing’ and ‘what planning routes are available’ and contains more detailed guidance on Rural Exception Sites and how to deliver affordable rural housing in your local area.

It also includes a range of case studies to explore the issues further.
