There are a number of different approaches to delivering housing supply, many of which sit under the broad heading of community-led housing. This term is commonly used to describe homes that are developed and/or managed by local people or residents, most commonly in not-for-profit organisational structures.

This section of the estate regeneration national strategy outlines these alternatives, including co-operative housing, community land trusts, development trusts, self-help and self-build housing, community-led housing associations, mutuals and almshouses.
