Community-driven place making

Four housing and community organisations have collaborated to produce a booklet showcasing six examples of community led place making. Five of the six case studies centre on new housing and one on a community woodland area. In the booklet’s foreword, the four bodies say that on top of the long-established role of community led development by local housing associations, current policy direction – including community empowerment and land reform legislation – has been hugely encouraging for people who want to influence how their community develops as a place to live.

The booklet was produced by Development Trusts Association Scotland, Glasgow and West of Scotland Forum of Housing Associations, Highlands Small Communities Housing Trust and Scottish Federation of Housing Associations. It is an action under the Joint Housing Delivery Plan – a collaboration between the Scottish Government and partner bodies.
