Dovercourt Development

Dovercourt Road

This is a brownfield development for a new residential area, 120 – 150 homes, on land owned by Bristol City Council, a former depot off Dovercourt Road, Horfield. Whilst the ambition is for a proportion of Council housing, the plans include affordable and market housing. The developer is Goram Homes (owned by the Council).

The Society has made some initial comments. We think the important matters at this stage are site access, permeability, creating a sense of place, and screening of views and the noise of trains.

    Welcome affordable housing developments but are there plans to ensure safe walking to
    shops and schools and health care provision?
    Bearing these provisos in mind, I think the development should be supported.
