The Local Housing Enabler and Community Housing Delivery Officers will work together and will have access to a supportive planning policy and strategic housing environment and a dedicated revenue and capital fund to assist communities in the development and delivery of community led housing schemes.
As the Local Housing Enabler you will be the first point of contact for local communities wanting to accommodate new homes for local people and will provide information on local housing need and support communities to understand the benefits that new homes can bring. You will ensure there is an ongoing pipeline of housing schemes which are eligible for funding from the Community Housing Fund.
As the Community Housing Delivery Officer you will work with communities to help them understand the impact of second and holiday homes and develop a tailored response to the local housing need and other community resilience, cohesiveness and sustainability needs of the community, through the provision of new homes.
