The site is currently the location of the Baltic Wharf Caravan Club and stands between the Baltic Wharf Estate and the Cottage Inn; it reaches from the Cumberland Road to the Harbour. Goram Homes, (the Developer) is a housing company founded by Bristol City Council. The proposal would deliver 165 flats in blocks that range in height from 3-storeys on the Baltic Wharf boundary, to 7-floors in the centre of the site.
Broadly, the Society supports the development but is concerned that the tall harbour-facing elevations could harm the character of the waterfront. Lower harbour-facing buildings would shield the step-up to taller buildings in the centre of the site and would lessen the impact on the locally listed Cottage Inn and the boat shed. The neighbouring buildings contribute to the character of the Harbour Conservation Area, an important heritage and leisure asset and a popular visitor attraction.
