Thousands of new jobs are set to be created in Bristol following news that Barratt Developments is planning a brand-new community on the outskirts of the city.
A total of 2,450 new homes, including more than 800 affordable homes, are to be built at Ladden Garden Village in North Yate by Barratt Developments, which includes Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes.
The major investment project from the five-star housebuilder reinforces its long-term commitment to the region with this development, one of its largest ever outside London.
Chris Burton, regional managing director for Barratt Developments, said confirmation of the new community at North Yate is good news for home buyers, the local jobs market and the wider community. “As the UK’s leading housebuilder we are delighted to be developing such a large and prestigious site in the south west,” he said.
“Ladden Garden Village will create valuable new homes, provide a wealth of community facilities and employment space and it will support around 7,500 jobs over the lifetime of the development.”
First homes due for launch in 2018
Construction at Ladden Garden Village is due to start next spring with the 10-year project incorporating a new primary school, extra care housing a local centre and public open space.
The land at North Yate has been allocated for new housing and received outline planning permission in 2015.
“This is an extremely important development both for Barratt Developments and for the North Yate area,” said Chris. “With the purchase of the land now complete we move into more detailed planning stage. Currently we are delighted to be finalising plans for the first phase of 160 homes from Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes which will released for sale next year.”
