The Community Led Housing Project – Astry Close

The Community-led Housing Project has been set up to address some of the housing issues identified in the Community Plan and the Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The intention is to build approximately 40 new homes for sale and rent on the cleared site at Astry Close and for these homes to be aimed primarily at meeting the needs and hopes of Lawrence Weston residents. The project places residents at the heart of the process, including all stages of decision making and design. In the long term this development will continue to be community-led and bring wider benefits to the local area.

Local residents Amy Smith and David Chedzoy are joint Chairs or the Steering Group which also has members from Bristol City Council, Ambition Lawrence Weston and Bristol Community Land Trust. Funding has been raised from Power to Change, Bristol City Council, National CLT Network and the Ministry for Homes, Communities and Local Government

Lisa Denison is the Project Manager and can be contacted anytime at lisa.denison@virgin.net or on 07900 908391.

The Steering Group has recently appointed Barefoot Architects to design the scheme who will be involving and consulting residents throughout the summer. See the press release here
