Plans revealed for new homes in Broadbury Road

Residents are being invited to give feedback at a public exhibition on 3 July to showcase plans for 47 new affordable homes in Broadbury Road.

Housing association Curo has announced proposals to build the homes next to Broad Plain Social Club – which will not be affected by the development and will remain for residents to enjoy into the future.

The scheme will be for 100 per cent affordable homes – which could deliver 25 houses and 22 flats and maisonettes with one to three bedrooms.

Of these, 37 homes would be available to purchase via the Shared Ownership scheme, offered on a part-buy/part-rent basis for local people who qualify – while the remaining ten would be let on social rent.

Curo’s plans also include parking provision for new residents on site.

If the scheme is approved, construction could start in June next year and be completed by mid 2021.

Curo Chief Executive, Victor da Cunha, says: “…We’ve developed the proposals in consultation with Bristol City Council and local stakeholders and now we want to hear from the community; please come along to the exhibition to let us know what you think.”

The public exhibition will be held on Wednesday 3 July at Broad Plain House Social Club on Broadbury Road (opposite the police station) from 3-7pm. Members of the project team and architects will be on hand to answer questions and residents will be able to give feedback on the plans.

For those unable to attend the exhibition – the plans will be available to view online to give comments from 4 July at: www.curo-group.co.uk/broadbury-road
