The Council proposes to build 188 new homes on land on south side of Bonnington Walk Lockleaze. The development will be ‘tenure blind’, a mix of private sale and affordable units (shared ownership and social rent) on, approximately, a 50/50 basis. This site has not been developed previously. The image shows the site surrounded on three sides by housing estates. The project is a mix of semi-detached houses, small terraces and small apartment blocks which will fit in with their surroundings.
The Society supports the principle of the development which is an appropriate use of under-used land. We support the proposed estate layout and the design and mix of new homes. The proposal accommodates the Concorde Way cycle route, the Site of Nature Conservation Interest, and the site trees and Lockleaze Community Orchard.
