Housing

 

Housing need, particularly in some smaller communities, may be addressed in the short/medium term by local processes bringing together housing specialists, the community and those with access to and control over land. This approach has worked on an ad hoc basis in some communities and may merit wider use.


A list of actions of the Development and Action Plan gives more details of the actions identified and those being carried out.


Current projects


Helmsdale and District Development Trust

Working with the Highland Small Communities Housing Trust and other partners the Helmsdale and District Development Trust has secured funding and land in order to build four affordable homes.
