The development forms a key part of the regeneration of South Bristol and will see land owned by Bristol City Council transformed into a new contemporary community featuring two to four bedroom houses and one and two bedroom apartments.
Thirty per cent of the homes will be classed as affordable with 80 homes for affordable rent and 25 for shared ownership. The remaining 245 homes will be made available for open market sale.
The development has been designed to include a variety of environmental initiatives to support the local wildlife including.
A swarm of blue butterflies and its sole food source, the kidney vetch plant, has been moved to another area on the site.
The development will include a wildflower “pollinator park”, a wildlife corridor and 450 new trees.
Russell Baldwinson, our Executive Director of Development, said: “This new development will provide a wide range of homes including much needed family housing in an attractive, exciting and vibrant new setting.
“Working with Keepmoat Homes and Bristol City Council we have had a common goal of creating a high quality new housing development which will provide our customers with a great place to live.”
Work will start on site in October 2019 with the first homes ready to be occupied in Spring 2020. For more information about this development visit keepmoat.com.
Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol said: “I am pleased to see that we have reached the next stage of this project and by doing so we are addressing one of our city’s most urgent priorities – building more housing, particularly affordable homes.
“We want to make Bristol a city where everyone has a safe roof over their heads, and we cannot do that without developments like this.”
Bristol City Council ran a series of consultation events relating to the developments from October 2017 to January 2018, to give residents and businesses an opportunity to have their say and find out more information about the project.
