Very excitingly, Brasted Close Community Land Trust project has been granted planning permission!
This means building work should start in the next few months, and the homes will be ready to be moved into by next year. This has been five years of campaigning by so many people and institutions in Lewisham Citizens. Together with our friends at RUSS, we are now one of two CLT projects with planning permission in Lewisham.
Now we need your help to decide who gets the homes? We are now deciding how we allocate the homes - e.g. do people from the Forest Hill / Sydenham area get priority over elsewhere in the borough? How do we define housing need? We will be selling these homes at proces linked to local income, so about half of market rate, so we expect lots of interest, and need to ensure we allocate fairly. Please join in by filling out this short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YCYQQCX
Feel free to share with friends and neighours, or online if you are part of Lewisham-based Facebook groups or online forums.
We hope to open allocations before the end of 2019, and will be emailing all the members of London CLT living in Lewisham when this happens.
