Affordable Housing Act recognises other housing models !

Section 6(2)(b)  "A housing authority may, for the purposes of subsection (1), enter into arrangements with a community-led housing organisation, a housing co-operative or a community land trust." 

The regulations which define what these terms (CLH, CLT, co-operative) mean in an Irish context are yet to be released, Cost Rental and Shared Equity elements of the Act are their fundamental priority at present. 

Well done to the team in 'Self Organised Architecture' for their part in getting this into the programme for government!
