Plans for modular housing scheme in Bristol set for approval

Plans for a development of almost 200 homes in Bristol are set to move forward after being recommended for approval. The city council is seeking permission for a housing scheme on a former allotment gardens off Bonnington Walk and Landseer Avenue.

Clearly this is a project which ARV Solutions will be tracking closely, as it’s on our home patch! We are developing a strong track record for providing professional staff and teams for clients with projects in Bristol. I remember a time when I used to joke that we recruited everywhere except Bristol. The Council, and Bristol Housing Festival is changing that for the better! Jim Roach

If approved, 185 modular homes, half of which will be affordable, would be built off-site for the Bonnington Walk development by Legal & General Modular Homes.

Bonnington Walk has been allocated for housing in Bristol’s Local Plan for more than 20 years. It is one of 43 sites the council has made available for new housing since 2016.

As well as the new homes, the proposed development involves improvements being made to adjoining areas of the site.

New allotment patches and open space will be introduced to complement the existing community orchard, a new local community hub will be built, and walking, cycling and road improvements will be made.

A report to be studied by councillors later this week recommends the application is approved, subject to a planning agreement, with the scheme said to bring forward an enhanced public realm and an appropriate mix of new homes, in terms of tenure and size.

Further Lockleaze housing schemes are planned by the council for sites at Muller Road and Branwhite Close.
