Community groups in England (outside Greater London) are invited to apply for a share of the £17.5m fund, which is being made available to provide seed corn funding to help groups to formally establish, build up their development proposals and submit a Community Right to Build Order.
The funding is available until the end of March 2015 or until funding is fully committed. It is unlikely that applications made after October 2014 will be successful.
Any community group or parish council can seek to access the funding provided that they have constituted a formal organisation that meets certain basic standards. Community groups are encouraged to contact Locality in the first instance to discuss their application and development proposals (http://www.homesandcommunities.co.uk/community-right-to-build).
