Launch of Filwood Park development

Impression of what the completed development will look like with the children’s play area.

The new Filwood Park development was officially launched in October – with the first apartments for sale.

Barratt Homes is building 150 properties on the site between Hengrove Way and Creswicke Road. They consist of two bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom houses – with 26 of these affordable housing.

The development is due to be completed in 2022 and is part of the multi-million pound regeneration project for the area.

A Barratt Homes spokesperson said: “Our three show homes are complete and we have more than 50 properties under construction…. We expect our first residents to move in at the end of the year…”

The key spine road through the property has also been built and traffic calming measures will be introduced to avoid it being used as a rat run. The path through the park is currently closed while construction takes place for safety reasons.

The housing will overlook parkland in the centre of the development, with a children’s play area and paths for walkers and runners. A park hub building is also planned for residents to hold activities and could also be used to serve drinks to park users.
