In March 2016 we ran a ballot for people interested in acquiring a new home at our Church Grove site, and effectively all the properties have now been allocated.

There is a reserve list – if you would like to join this please complete a Church Grove Project – Expression of Interest Form and email it to

Alternatively, the completed form can be sent by post to Church Grove Project, RUSS, 12 Church Grove, London. SE13 7UU.

Filling in the Expression of Interest form
When filling in the application form, you will need to commit to joining RUSS as a member and state your local connection to the London Borough of Lewisham. This is a condition of our development agreement with the council – guidance can be found on the Allocation Policy

You will need to make a choice of home size and tenure when applying – homes are  from one to four bedrooms on a social rented, affordable rented, shared equity and shared ownership basis. You will need to choose a ‘pool’ defined by a combination of size and tenure – and each pool is described in the Church Grove Offer document.

You will also need to state your household income on the Expression of Interest form, alongside any savings you anticipate being able to put towards the project – this is to check that you are being realistic about your ability to afford the home you have applied for.

The date of your application will be the date your email is received, or if by post then the date shown on the postal frank on the envelope.
