In Creating Community-Led and Self-Build Homes, Martin Field explores the ways in which people and communities across the United Kingdom have worked to create the homes and neighborhoods they desire. This book explores the concepts of self-build housing and community-led housing, examining both the distinctions and common threads between these ideas in practice, as well as what can be learned from other similar initiatives across Europe. Looking at  individual methods and models of local practice, including co-housing, co-operatives, community land trusts, empty homes, and other intentional communities, Field explores what has constrained such initiatives so far and how future policies and practice might be shaped.
