If a community wishes to build new buildings or housing, that may be possible through the Community Right to Build, also part of the Localism Act. As with a Neighbourhood Plan, the Parish Council would convene a group that conducted a detailed consultation with the community. A community referendum on the plan would be required. The resources that result (e.g. buildings, rent) must remain with the community.
