Custom Build Bristol
To increase the supply of affordable housing that Bristolians want by allocating publicly owned housing development land for large scale custom building to individual requirements. A pilot would show that this approach increases the speed of house building, reduces the cost of housing and increases public land value. Other developed countries build 50% of their houses this way and build twice as many homes per head.
Why the contribution is important
There is a huge unsatisfied demand for custom build housing and a huge demand for new homes but no large scale delivery in the UK. Bristol can lead the way in showing how this can be done. Custom builders in Bristol are likely to specify greener, better designed homes contributing to Green Capital and a Better Bristol.
