What makes this scheme different?

Brighter Places, Bristol and Bath Regional Capital (BBRC) and Cheyne Social Property Impact Fund are building this development together. It’s the first project its kind in the UK that brings together a housing association, a community investment company and private sector capital to provide much needed, high quality, affordable homes to rent and buy.

How will this scheme benefit the community?

This is a mixed tenure scheme comprising open market, rent to buy, affordable rent, shared ownership, key worker rental and ethical market rent properties.​​​​​​​

The development consists of 161 beautifully curated homes with rich landscaping linking to open parkland in Southmead, Bristol.  Originally designed as a Garden Suburb, Southmead lies within a pleasant green environment of open parkland and wooded areas. Elderberry Walk embraces these surroundings completely and takes nature to heart.  Our generously spaced homes sit amid a green realm of private gardens, tree-lined avenues and footpaths.  At the heart of it all runs a wide landscaped lane, offering a safe and welcoming community space for residents and their families to meet and gather, relax and play.

How to find out more about available homes

Homes available for rent will be let through Bristol City Council’s choice-based letting scheme, HomeChoice.

Homes available for shared ownership will be sold via the Brighter Places Sales website
