Church Grove Community Housing Project
January 2021

In March 2016 we ran a ballot for people interested in living in the Church Grove Community Housing Project, and the majority of the properties have now been allocated. There are, however, a number of  1- and 2-bedroom homes available for Fixed Equity sale, with a short (or no) waiting list. Applications are now invited for these flats, which will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis.

Homes at Church Grove range from one to four bedrooms, and are available with different types of tenure: social rented, affordable rented, fixed equity and shared ownership.

Details of all the homes and types of tenure currently available can be requested by emailing allocations@theruss.org. You can also join a Waiting List for pools where no homes are available right now, but may become available in the future.

How to apply – complete an Expression of Interest Form:

To do this you will need to:

  • choose the size of home and type of tenure you would like (for details see: Church Grove Offer NEW DRAFT Rev 28 Jan 2021)
  • join RUSS as a member by filling in the application form here
  • state your connection to the London Borough of Lewisham. This is a condition of our agreement with the council – guidance can be found in the Allocation Policy
  • state your household income on the Expression of Interest form, alongside any savings you can put towards your new home.
