Alice Grahame, author of ‘Walters Way and Segal Close: The Architect Walter Segal and London’s Self-Build Community’, will explain how the original Walters Way self-build project came about.
Kareem Dayes grew up in Walters Way and went on to set up RUSS. He has been the driving force behind RUSS’s current project in Church Grove, which is due to start on site later this year.
“We want to hear about the issues and ideas that are important to local people so that we can make RUSS a truly community-led movement, as we seek to build sustainable neighbourhoods and genuinely affordable homes in Lewisham and beyond,”
The Rural Urban Synthesis Society (RUSS) is a CLT with the aim of creating sustainable community-led neighbourhoods with affordable housing. The ambitious Church Grove scheme of 33 homes offers self-build opportunities for local people.
