Labour-run Bristol City Council has appointed two developers to build 350 homes at Hartcliffe Campus – bringing the major South Bristol housing scheme another step closer.
Back in September 2018 the council secured outline planning permission to pave the way for up to 350 homes, including 30% affordable housing, on the site.
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 continuing to address 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.
“South Bristol needs decent housing and this development could help to revitalise the area. We can also expect to see a boost for the local economy. We have consulted closely with the local community throughout this process to make sure we produce a scheme that will complement the area and if all goes to plan, we look forward to work getting underway later this year.”
To provide long term protection for wildlife at the site, new habitats are planned within the masterplan for the Hartcliffe Campus development, including a wildlife corridor, a pollinator park and rooftop habitats.
