The places we live should provide us with access to everything we need for a good quality of life. We’re working with local partners and urging the government to create well-designed, vibrant places that people want to live in – with the homes people need, great public transport links and easy access to work, leisure and nature.
We all have the right to a home we can afford to live in, wherever we are.
We want everyone in the countryside to have a fair chance in life, whatever their circumstances. To make this a reality, we need to ensure there are enough low cost homes to rent or buy in our villages and market towns.
In collaboration with Rutland County Council, CPRE Rutland has produced and piloted an affordable housing survey booklet that can be used by parish councils and/or their local communities to survey their housing needs at a local level.
CPRE Rutland is also working with Uppingham Homes CLT the county’s only community land trust to support the development of truly affordable homes in the south of Rutland for local for younger people.
