158 new homes, on existing under-utilised ‘brownfield‘ land, close to cycling routes and bus stops, and within walking distance of shops and other facilities.
Approximately 20% ‘tenure blind‘ affordable homes, reflective of similar schemes elsewhere in Bristol, to be managed by a Registered Provider.
Homes that are of a ‘liveable‘ size, meeting Nationally Described Space Standards, and with access to private balconies and gardens as well as shared outdoor space.
New publicly accessible open space within the scheme, including a riverside walkway, outdoor gym, informal play features for children, timber viewing deck, picnic area and seating.
‘Framed‘ view from Coronation Road through the site, down the contours of the slope and a long vista towards the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the locally distinctive rows of terraces stepping down the hillside in Clifton & Hotwells.
Habitat enhancement along the river, and retention of trees.
Prioritisation of cycling, with 320 cycle spaces for residents – 19% more than is required by local policy (plus 16 spaces for visitors in accordance with policy) and connection to existing cycle routes.
Prioritisation of walking, including a signalised pedestrian crossing near the entrance to the development, providing a safer route to reach the local facilities on North Street, as well as the nearest bus stops.
Low carbon design measures including the adoption of energy efficient design principles, the provision of photovoltaic panels and heat pumps (delivering a reduction in carbon emissions from residual energy demand of 42%, and a further 20% of emissions beyond the Part L baseline).
No impact on existing air quality, and predicted concentrations within the development do not exceed Air Quality Standards.
£351, 619 towards community infrastructure (CIL) (the precise final figure is subject to verification and further amendments to the scheme).
Other s.106 contributions, which will potentially include improvements to the existing foot/ cycleway along Coronation Road, upgrading bus stops nearby, other improvements to the highway, car-free agreements, the adoption of a Travel Plan to promote the use of more sustainable modes of transport and a contribution towards the provision of public art subject to viability.
