The Mayor of London pledges £30k to create a knowledge hub for self-building, community-led housing and sustainable living.
Nearly all homes in the Church Grove project have already been allocated. There is still only one bed shared equity flat available (Pool 1). However there may occasions where other homes become available, for example if a resident or household decides to leave the scheme. If you would like to apply for a home or join the waiting list please complete an Expression of Interest form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it by post to RUSS, 11 Walters Way, London, SE23 3LH
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.
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 available from one to four bedrooms on a social rented, affordable rented, shared equity and shared ownership basis. Not all homes are available on all tenures. 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.
