Plans for 33 homes on the old swimming pool site at Filwood Broadway are now online for residents to give feedback – with the consultation live until 7 May.

The proposed development by local housing association LiveWest will be a mix of houses and apartments – with a proportion being affordable homes.

The old swimming pool, which was built in 1962, closed in 2005 and was later demolished – and the site has lain empty since.

The new homes will be a mix of one, two and three bedrooms, all houses will have private gardens and the apartments will have private and communal gardens.

There will be 37 car parking spaces – with eight of them for electric vehicles and two accessible spaces. Bike storage will also be provided as part of the development. Access for both pedestrians, cycles and vehicles will be from Filwood Broadway.

LiveWest says due to the removal of some trees during the development – the scheme will include “substantial new tree planting” and there will be landscaping both within the gardens and public areas.

Local people have until midnight on 7 May to give their views. Due to the pandemic, the consultation will be totally online.
