Planning approval secured at Bristol site

Planning approval secured at Bristol site

South Gloucestershire Council has granted planning permission for 119 new homes in north Bristol in a boost for local aspiring homeowners.

Charles Church – the sister brand of Persimmon Homes, one of the UK’s leading house builders – will develop a parcel at Beaufort Park with a range of two to five-bedroom houses available for local people.

All 119 will be fitted with solar panels and capacity for electric vehicle charging points. The scheme also includes playgrounds, an allotment, and active travel links to adjacent development and throughout the site.

The plans will also bring numerous environmental and ecological benefits including hedgerow and tree retention and planting, bird and bat boxes, log piles, wildlife ponds, and dormouse-friendly planting, all of which will support and enhance local biodiversity.

As a result of this development a contribution will be made towards the wider infrastructure, including local education, community, transport and highways being delivered as part of the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood. The scheme will also include a travel plan with a contribution towards the Smarter Choices Fund.*

31 of the homes will be dedicated for a housing association, and will include affordable and social rent, shared ownership, and two extra care units, suitable for residents in wheelchairs.

In December, Persimmon Severn Valley presented their donation to Bristol Children’s Charity at its Beaufort Park site as part of our Community Champions initiative which sees over £700,000 donated across Britain to good causes and much-valued organisations every year.

Three and four-bed homes are currently available at Beaufort Park from £389,995.

Commenting, Persimmon Homes Severn Valley’s Managing Director, Paul Moody, said:

“We’re very pleased to have secured permission for our Charles Church phase at Fishpool Hill, furthering our commitment to delivering for housing need in the Bristol area.

“With financial contributions towards community, transport, and highways infrastructure in addition to ecological enhancements, properties for a housing association partner, and sustainability features, we have a scheme that will leave a positive and lasting legacy.

“We look forward to getting started on construction and thank South Gloucestershire Council for working with us to bring high-quality and affordable homes to the local area.”
