Completion: August 2023
Local Authority: Bristol City Council
Contractor: Speller Metcalfe
Tenure: Social rent, Shared Ownership and market sale
Working in partnership with Bristol City Council, we will build a mixture of two, three and four bedroom houses and one and two bedroom apartments. Of these, 17 homes will be available for social rent and 20 for Shared Ownership – and another 37 will be for open-market sale, with profits reinvested back to deliver more affordable homes in the future.
This site will include air source heat pumps to all properties. And electric car charging points will be installed at selected properties.
The sales arena for Shackleton Heights is expected for September 2023.
The development will provide 50% affordable homes which is a significant increase on the usual 30% requested by Bristol City Council. To meet the needs of a range of people and provide vital homes to help solve the city’s housing challenge.
“We’re delighted to be working with Bristol City Council to provide these new homes. As Lockleaze is a brownfield site, it’s great to be revitalising this unused land, helping to build communities, and address the shortage of homes across Bristol without putting strain on an ever-expanding city.”
Stephen Lodge, Executive Director of Development and Strategic Asset Management for Abri.
