Our pledge, drafted as housing associations with a specific focus and understanding on affordable rural homes, offers a clear set of guarantees.

It underlines the commitment of Rural Housing Alliance members to working in partnership with local communities in order to ensure high quality homes and services.

We pledge to:

• Work closely with the local community and Parish Council to find the right site
• Always give qualifying local people in housing need first priority for every home
• Ensure that affordable homes always remain affordable
• Build sensitively designed, high quality homes to high environmental standards
• Provide good quality and locally sensitive management services to our residents
• Always respond positively to the local community

We work to promote this pledge to rural local authorities and parish councils.
