15 homes in the Greater Fishponds area, including two wheelchair-accessible one-bedroom homes designed to aid independent living for people with physical disabilities. The design includes balconies and ground floor gardens which provide outdoor spaces.
Tenure 15 affordable rent
Practical completion Projected May 2024
The scheme is being built using a fabric first approach, which maximises the energy efficiency of the building to reduce energy consumption. The homes will also use a Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) system that reduces moisture in the air and uses warmth from kitchens and bathrooms to heat the rest of the home, and ground source heat pumps that provide residents with sustainable energy to heat their homes.
These carbon-reducing technologies will provide comfortable and condensation-free homes all year round and savings on energy bills.
The works will include improvements to Oldbury Court out of school club which is situated next to the site. These will include accessible toilets, roofing works and improved parking.
Homes available for rent will be let through Bristol City Council’s choice-based letting scheme, HomeChoice.
