Water Lilies

Water Lilies is our most recent development and the first one that did not get snapped up by our friends.

These self-built and self-finished homes are nestled within woodland and parkland and will share a fabulous garden and water lily pond at the heart of the community. The drawings will give you some idea of what it may look like in the end, subject to further input from the co-builders.

We were flooded with interest in the first phase of plots and oversubscribed, and the application for these is now closed. However, if you would like to stay updated with new opportunities with Bright Green Futures and at Water Lilies, please register your interest here and we will be in touch once planning permission is obtained, which we expect to be some time in 2018, when these plots are scheduled to become available.

The following film is of an event we held on 9th April 2017 for people interested in self-building with Bright Green Futures. This was part of a series of events and workshops to co-create the forthcoming eco self-build community in Bristol, Water Lilies.
