Blog Series: UK’s Urban CLT’s – Rural Urban Synthesis Society (Lewisham)


The Rural Urban Synthesis Society, a CLT based in Lewisham, was founded in 2009 and now has over 500 members. Its mission is to reduce its communities’ dependence on fossil fuels, increase food security, encourage biodiversity and provide affordable housing for Londoners through creating charming, low-energy, genuinely affordable homes in sustainable neighborhoods managed by residents.

Their first project, planned to start in January 2018,  is a  self-build scheme for 33 new sustainable, high quality homes and shared open space at Church Grove in Ladywell, Lewisham.
