Community land trust Rural Urban Synthesis Society (RUSS) has successfully bid for the Church Grove site, a community self and custom build site of 30 homes. Applications for self-builders to join the community custom build group are now open – see Apply For A Home.
Status at March 2015
Potential for 30 new self or custom build homes on the site of a former school in Ladywell, being put forward by Lewisham Council. The Council is looking for a community-led partner organisation to work with residents who want to build their own home, which is currently undergoing enabling developer procurement, due to close at the end of 2015. Council officers have been working with self-build facilitators, Our London, to understand the views of interested residents, understand technical site constraints, and devise a selection process for community-led self-build enablers.
