New models of housing delivery


Bristol is facing a housing crisis. Yet decent affordable homes are the foundation of a successful city. The Mayor has pledged to deliver 2,000 new homes (800 affordable) per year by 2020. This will be achieved by setting up a Local Housing Company. This Company will have a remit to promote use of brown eld sites across the city for housing, work with local communities and support the development of alternative housing initiatives such as co-housing and communal living that aim to tackle wider social challenges such as social isolation and community cohesion. Affordability will be addressed through reduced running costs of sustainable homes.
