Work starts on site at Hartcliffe Campus
04 December 2019
A new community of 350 new homes came a step closer this week, as work started on site in Hartcliffe, Bristol.
The development is being led by top Keepmoat in collaboration with housing provider LiveWest, forming a key part of the regeneration of South Bristol.
The land, which was owned by Bristol City Council, will feature a range of two, three and four-bedroom houses and one and two-bedroom apartments.
Almost a third of the properties will be available through social rent or shared ownership schemes.
In addition to the 350 new homes, the development will include a variety of ecological initiatives to support the local wildlife, including a wildflower “pollinator park”, a wildlife corridor and 450 new trees.
Richard Young, Technical Director at Keepmoat Homes said:
“We are thrilled to be starting work on the first phase of the development at Hartcliffe. This development will transform the local area, bringing much-needed housing to the community.
“We have created an excellent partnership with Live West and Bristol City Council, and we are looking forward to creating an attractive neighbourhood which hundreds of people will call home”
Russell Baldwinson, LiveWest’s Executive Director of Development, said:
“We are delighted that work has commenced at Harcliffe.
“The development will provide a wide range of homes, including much needed affordable 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.”
Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol said:
“We are delighted to be involved with a project that addresses one of our city’s most urgent priorities – building more housing, particularly affordable homes in areas that need it the most.
“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.”
The site was granted planning permission in July 2019 and the first residents are expected to be able to move into their new homes in Summer 2020.
