What we do
Hampshire Homes Hub – community housing expertise
How can we help you?
Over the course of your project, we can provide detailed technical advice or more wide-ranging support at every stage to enable your group to grow and work cohesively together.
Hampshire Homes Hub works in partnership with local authorities to support community led housing groups and projects to develop their ideas and bring them to fruition. We can offer information, advice, technical support, advocacy and assist to broker relationships and partnerships through every stage of the process.
Some examples might include:
Gaining a basic understanding of the opportunities, challenges, process and structures of community led housing.
Clarifying purpose, identifying need, organising governance, accessing funding, helping with incorporation, engaging the community and developing a business plan.
Identifying and appraising a suitable site, public consultation, choosing a partner (e.g. a housing association).
Project planning, developing an allocations policy, appointing consultants, feasibility, housing needs survey, funding and finance, public consultation, design brief, planning future management and completing a ‘section 106 agreement’.
Considering design and build options, managing the process and choosing partners.
Ensuring the scheme is well managed and maintained through strong governance and robust policies and procedures to comply with regulatory requirements.
