The Collaborative Housing Alliance

Why should local authorities be interested?

**New finance
**Bringing alternative sources of finance to housing projects, such as citizen-lending.

**Value for money
**Each pound invested generates higher value in return than conventional housing development.

**Additionality
**Homes are built that would not otherwise be delivered.

**Public Support
**Our workshop approaches generate public support for new housing, unlocking previously unavailable sites.

**Identifying sites
**New land supply brought into the development process that would not have been possible through other means.

**Social cohesion
**The generation of social capital has been proven to be higher through community-led models.

**Climate targets
**Involving residents in the design of their homes results in more ambitious energy approaches, in part due to the pursuit of lower monthly bills.

**Responsive to change
**Neighbourhoods that are flexible to the changing needs of residents and those who require dedicated care services.
