Affordable Rural Housing — the View from Yorkshire, UK

Affordable rural housing is an issue in the UK

In this video produced by by the North Yorks Strategic Housing Partnership, ways that affordable housing can be integrated into a rural community are discussed — an interesting perspective from across the Atlantic.
