A campaign by landowners to combat homelessness in the countryside will be be supported by a scheme that recognises outstanding rural architecture, reports The Western Mail (Country and Farming, p8).
The Country Landowners Association 2001 farm and country buildings award has added a category for new buildings within 'affordable housing' schemes, aimed at encouraging more new homes for local-born people who are forced out of communities because of a shortage of reasonably priced accommodation.
The organisers invite entries from landowners, tenant farmers, manufacturers, planners, agricultural co-operatives and amenity groups. Entry forms will be available from 1 September.
