Archio gets green light for Lewisham CLT homes

Archio's Community Land Trust homes approved for an infill site in Sydenham, south London

Practice pledges south London infill scheme will be 100% affordable

East London practice Archio has secured planning permission for an 11-home infill Community Land Trust development in Lewisham.

The scheme, earmarked for the site of disused garages in Brasted Close, Sydenham, is the first of a planned wave of 200 CLT homes targeted by borough mayor Damian Egan over the next four years.

Archio said the Sydenham project would be 100% affordable, with each of the properties linked to the price of local wages – meaning that a one-bed home will cost £192,000 and two-beds £244,000.
