Affordable housing scheme

MWNP logo colThe adopted Much Wenlock Neighbourhood Plan seeks to encourage home ownership at an affordable level which suits the needs of an ageing population, first- time buyers and young families. It cites small schemes comprising up to ten dwellings to remain as affordable housing for people with a local connection, in perpetuity.

Marches CLT Services, a consultancy provided by Shropshire Housing Group with expertise in community-led housing, has been working with a small group of local people to explore this ambition. The Town Council will consider how it will work with this community-led housing initiative at its next meeting on 3rd September 2015. The meeting will, as usual, be held in public. Further information about the scheme may be found on the website: www.shropshirehousinggroup.co.uk/muchwenlockcommunity
