The city council is testing the water with a custom build project in the Fishponds area of the city, in collaboration with the Bristol Community Land Trust. Supporting the Bristol CLT, a site of 12 homes comprising 6 within a refurbished old school building and 6 new build homes.
The community land trust (CLT) has held a number of events in Bristol, and is working with those who have expressed an interest to be involved. The project will be based on the self finish model, where the future residents work as a team to complete in the internal works of the homes, as well as the landscaping. The bulk of the building work will be undertaken by a contractor on behalf of the CLT.
The city council is interested to know if you would like to be part of a CLT project, or any other form of resident involved housing, including co-housing, individual self build, custom build, for example.
