Rural Housing Enabler Project

Rural Housing Enablers are independent advisors who work with communities to support the development of affordable housing schemes in small rural communities (under 3,000 people). Working with communities, parish councils, local authorities and housing providers they will:

  • help identify where there is real housing need

  • look for suitable exception sites outside current plans

  • support site owners and community representatives to navigate the planning system

  • create developments in rural areas that meet the needs of local people

Our Rural Housing Enabler will focus on expediting delivery of schemes with 100% affordable homes, in parish communities of around 3000 people. We will work with communities, landowners, Registered Providers and Herefordshire Council to identify rural exception sites and facilitating local housing needs surveys with parishes.

What the process looks like.

If you think you have a housing need, and any ideas about land availability in your parish please get in touch with us using our contact form.
