 Inspired by successful prototype schemes such as LILAC, Lancaster and Springhill, Stroud, many groups of people are coming together to try to form their own communities, getting involved in the design, procurement and building of their homes.

Community housing can include group self builds, cohousing, Community Land Trusts, Coops as well as other entities
