Self Build Housing Estate
The government has suggested that people should be able to buy land and then build their own houses, however supply at affordable rates are quite few and far between and often remote from urban areas where the majority of people life and work.
My idea is for Bristol City Council to use its land and influence to create a site or sites where this could be implemented.
Why the contribution is important
Housing is dominated by a number of large developers where housing estates are constructed to a formula creating similar and standardised estates throughout the country. Many people watch programmes such as Grand Designs and would like to build their own houses, however individual plots are often bought an inflated prices which limits the access to many. By creating a serviced site this would open the estate to the masses attracting people who would not necessarily make Bristol their home. Furthermore these sites could be used to train and skill people who are looking for employment or a new career
