Rural Housing Enabler

Since June 2011 the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs Rural Housing Enabler initiative has been helping the National Park’s communities take action on local housing options.

The project was established by the Park Authority and the Rural Housing Service with support from Argyll and the Islands LEADER and Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER. 

Although Phase 1 of the project concluded in December 2012, there remains a role to work at a grass roots level in the National Park to help the Park’s communities, landowners and individuals identify their affordable housing needs and deliver new housing opportunities

The current economic climate and reduction in public subsidies means that the delivery of affordable housing is challenging across all of Scotland. These challenges are heightened within the National Park given its rural location and desirability as a place to live. There are a number of Councils and Housing Associations whose administrative boundaries cover different areas of the Park and there are many benefits of providing a joined up approach to housing delivery.

The National Park Authority is currently considering options for a Phase 2 project which will continue to provide affordable housing advice and support within the Park, complementary to the existing services provided by the local Councils, Housing Associations and other housing bodies.
