In Creating the Conditions for New Settlements the Building and Social Housing Foundation proposes New Settlement Partnerships as a way of enabling large scale locally-led development with a more active role for communities. The model proposes an equal strategic partnership between community representatives, developers, landowners, local authorities and other stakeholders (according to the scope of the development). The function of the partnership is to act as a formalised body, with rights and responsibilities for all members (to ensure democratic representation), to develop proposals and solutions that best meet the needs of a particular area.
In April 2014 BSHF submitted this response to the Social Economy Alliance’s consultation on well-founded growth based on information from previous BSHF research.
