News that the construction industry and government has collaborated in a new joint venture - the self build portal - basically a web site that at the very least starts to encourage a range of different approaches to housing procurement, construction and funding. It seems to bring a lot of information together and provides a pretty good scope for different options that should be considered as the initial stages of any project. Lots of great links to collaborative approaches including community land trusts, co-housing as well as individual plots and projects.
