Project 1000 Affordable Housing Delivery Plan, and New Council Homes Development Programme (HRA Business Plan)
This decision is made in accordance with The Project 1000 Affordable Housing Delivery Plan 2022-25 which outlines how the council will focus its land, time, money, and influence to improve the way affordable housing is delivered in Bristol.
This decision is also in accordance with the New Council Homes Development Programme (HRA Business Plan) approved by Cabinet and Full Council.


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 Stepnell Ltd for the construction of 24 new council homes and 6 Shared ownership homes with a start on site in June 2024.

Alternative options considered:

•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.
