To accelerate the provision of housing to meet the Mayor’s target of making sure that 2,000 new homes – 1000 affordable – are built in Bristol each year by 2024.


That the Executive Director of Growth and Regeneration in consultation with the Mayor (with appropriate legal, finance and procurement advice) approves entering into contract with Jehu for the construction of 34 new council homes.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - The alternative is to sell the sites, but this is likely to result in a lower level of “genuinely affordable” homes being delivered.
The scheme enables the HRA to spend RTB receipts at risk of being returned.
The proposal is for a revenue generating scheme that will benefit the HRA Business Plan.
