Darren backs Lockleaze Housing Festival

Member of Parliament for Bristol North West, Darren Jones visited Lockleaze Housing Festival on 26th October.

The Housing Festival was held to inform residents about plans for new housing in Lockleaze including sites on Bonnington Walk, Blake Site and Muller Road.

Darren said:

“The council have just received over £577,000 to help speed-up the building of 50 new homes in Lockleaze – this is great news.

The council’s consultation on four proposed housing sites – including Bonnington Walk – is now live.

In terms of Bonnington Walk – the new housing, which will include 30% affordable, is likely to include semi-detached houses, short terraces and small apartment blocks around tree-lined streets with a mix of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bed homes.  Parking will be a combination of on and off street, with small parking courtyards provided for the apartments. It is anticipated that houses will face the new open spaces and the cycle route, providing overlooking and security throughout the day and night. The project team has been carrying out some initial surveys and site investigations and clearance to inform the future plans as part of the pre-planning works.

We desperately need new affordable housing in the area, so the Housing Festival and consultation are very positive steps.

You can review the plans and complete the council’s consultation here”.
