English Rural is pleased to be a supporter of the rural housing 5-Star Plan, recently launched by the National Housing Federation in advance of Rural Housing Week (3rd to 7th July 2017). The 5-Star Plan looks to promote and encourage the supply of new homes in villages that meet local needs and in partnership with the local community. The innovative 5-Star Plan shines a spotlight on the need for increased investment and emphasis on delivering homes desperately needed in rural communities. Challenging those that are able to make a difference to do so.
Commenting on the 5-Star Plan, English Rural’s Operations Director, Martin Collett said:- ‘Having played an important role in developing the 5-Star Plan, I am proud that English Rural, along with other rural advocates are now in a position to formally support it. There is a real opportunity for the 5-Star Plan to make a difference by securing local community partnerships that deliver homes in villages across England’.
