Work has begun at Filwood Park in Bristol in readiness for Barratt Homes to create 150 new homes as part of a major regeneration scheme in the area.
The five star housebuilder is due on site later this year once remediation works are complete with the show homes due to launch in winter 2018.
Barratt Homes managing director Russell Glimstead visited site and said preparation work is well underway and the team is looking forward to starting the build process on the site which is owned by the Homes and Communities Agency and was formerly the site of support building for the old Bristol (Whitchurch) Airport and an area of open land.
“The new development is set to transform this area of Bristol and current work includes creating access roads at the heart of Filwood Park,” said Russell.
“In addition to the homes we are really looking forward to creating the parkland at the heart of Filwood Park with homes overlooking the open space and plenty of room for the children’s play area and paths for walkers and runners.”
There will also be a focus on ecology with new native trees planted for shelter and wildlife and marginal planting and meadow grass to create habitats for insects.
Bespoke urban designs
Homes on the development will be built to Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes with bespoke urban designs to create a landmark development and a crescent of homes overlooking the park a key feature.
HCA General Manager Kevin Bourner said it was great to see work underway at Filwood Park. “We are looking forward to seeing the new development take shape as a crucial element of the regeneration of Filwood.
