The scheme would need to be clearly advertised as a CCLH scheme and that successful applicants are expected to become and participate as CCLH members in the group development programme and in the running of the CCLH scheme. The needs of the developing community group would need to be taken into account when identifying founder members. Where grant funding requires that people in housing need are housed, that housing need needs to be balanced with the willingness of applicants to participate in co-operative housing.
The Council, or the housing association, will need to pre‑allocate homes to enable development of the CCLH scheme. Other allocation methods could be used for subsequent relets.
