Creating Community-Led and Self-Build Homes
A Guide to Collaborative Practice in the UKav Martin Field129
In Creating Community-Led and Self-Build Homes, Martin Field explores the ways in which people and communities across the UK have been striving to create the homes and neighbourhood communities they want. Giving context to contemporary practices in the UK, the book examines 'self-build housing' and 'community-led housing', discussing the commonalities and distinctions between these in practice, and what could be learned from other initiatives across Europe. Individual methods and models of local practice are explored - including cohousing, cooperatives, community land trusts, empty homes and other intentional communities - and an examination is made of what has constrained such initiatives to date and how future policies and practice might be shaped.

"Martin Field knows community led housing like the back of his hand. This book is an invaluable, up-to-date overview of the sector, demonstrating that it is a diverse grass roots housing movement, that if given the chance can offer an important alternative to our broken housing market" Bob Colenutt, Oxford Brookes University.
Martin Field has been associated with projects in the community-led housing sector for many years, including research initiatives at Northampton and De Montfort Universities. He is currently Senior Facilitator with East Midlands Community Led Housing.
