We give necessary and sufficient conditions for the left projectivity and biprojectivity of Banach algebras defined by locally trivial continuous fields of Banach algebras. We identify projective $C^*$algebras $\A$ defined by locally trivial continuous fields $\mathcal{U} = \{\Omega,(A_t)_{t \in \Omega},\Theta\}$ such that each $C^*$algebra $ A_{t}$ has a strictly positive element. For a commutative $C^*$algebra $\D$ contained in ${\cal B}(H)$, where $H$ is a separable Hilbert space, we show that the condition of left projectivity of $\D$ is equivalent to the existence of a strictly positive element in $\D$ and so to the spectrum of $\D$ being a Lindel$\ddot{\rm o}$f space.
