Sustainable housing schemes designed and developed by the communities that live in them, are increasingly popular across the UK. They provide a brighter, greener approach to meeting Britain’s housing needs.
Whether your scheme is co-housing, self-build, community land trust, affordable house or eco trust, our Sustainable Housing team can help guide your project to a successful conclusion.
Wherever we can, we aim to help protect the natural environment, so we’ll always be fully engaged and proactive in supporting the creation of better places to live and work. We act for community-led housing groups on a range of issues, and understand the legal complexities inherent in creating mutual and coordinated living spaces that have minimal impact on the environment.
From options and leases to highway agreements, bespoke constitutions, planning advice and nomination agreements with local authorities, our expert team draws on years of sustainable housing experience to help you identify opportunities and realise your objectives.
We can also advise on the incorporation of renewable technologies, micro-grids and smart technology, backed by expertise and experience across the UK.
Whether you want to better understand the legal requirements for co-housing, explore setting up a community land trust, or engage with neighbourhood planning, we’re on hand for all the support and assistance you need.
