Foxley Tagg News - Right to Build Expert Taskforce Launched

NaCSBA has announced the launch of the new Right to Build Expert Task Force. This Task Force will help Local Authorities, community groups and other organisations across the UK deliver large, affordable custom and self-build housing projects. The Task Force aims to help at least 80 organisations create significantly more affordable homes over the next three years. To help ensure other projects benefit, the lessons learned will be shared through regional events and case studies within the Right to Build Portal.

The Task Force was recognised by Government in its recently published White Paper “Fixing our broken housing market” and is being supported by a number of partners including the Building and Social Housing Foundation, National Housing Federation, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and Royal Town Planning Institute.

MP Richard bacon said “I am confident the Task Force will deliver real change and I am delighted to become its Ambassador.”

The Task Force is funded by the Nationwide Foundation, which aims to increase the availability of decent affordable homes for people in housing need.
Chair of NaCSBA, Michael Holmes, said: “We are grateful to the Nationwide Foundation for supporting NaCSBA’s goal to ensure that people currently in housing need, who want to build their own decent and affordable home, can exercise their Right to Build”.
