Affordable Housing

Post in Affordable Housing by Tina Hartley
Social and affordable housing is a topic for many rural communities, what are your thoughts on the idea put forward by a member of our community?

Affordable housing - community's can apply for housing grants from the Government take a look at The Highlands Smaall Communities Housing Trust.  

A block of five houses with a small windmill (as seen at Knockfarrel Organic Croft ) will give enough electricity for six houses ( plus some electricity to sell to the grid) and makes them affordable to heat.

I like the idea of combining the land use of a plot with a native woodland development, perhaps organic vegetable, plus a pig or two!  (I'd like an RHouse Am Bothy Mor - love the shape).
