Jacqueline Tellinga is the Task Force’s first international expert. She believes firmly that people should be able to shape their own homes and living environments. Experience in the Netherlands has shown that once the initiative is relegated to local people, home building can create enormously diverse living environments.

As the project manager of the Homeruskwartier in Almere with 1,400 individual plots, she has been responsible for bringing forward the largest Self Build development in the Netherlands. From the development of the urban vision, helping galvanise political support and achieving consensus between stakeholders, through to practical implementation.

Jacqueline has been advisor to The Hague City Council on the establishment of a Custom and Self Build programme and is a member of the Dutch Government’s ExpertteamEigenbouw which advises municipalities nationally. Her latest project is the BouwEXPO Tiny Housing.

She is the author of various publications on how to protect the interests of individual citizens in the deregulation of planning and housing delivery and teaches at the University of Amsterdam.
