The regeneration of the area will deliver around 1,300 new student spaces and 800 new homes, including a mix of homes for rent on the open market and to buy through shared ownership as well as homes available for social rent. The properties will be a mixture of one to three bedroom apartments and will bring around 3,500 new residents to the area.
In line with Bristol’s ambitious goals to tackle the climate emergency, Bedminster Green’s new homes will be connected to the city’s low-carbon District Heat Network, ensuring the homes are provided with a cheap, reliable and low carbon source of heat.
Work includes installing the underground infrastructure needed to deliver the District Heat Network for Bedminster Green and the surrounding areas. Highly insulated pipework is being installed within the highway, ready to export heat from sustainable generation sources to homes and businesses in the area.
Bedminster Green homes will be within easy reach of Victoria Park to the south and the shops of East Street to the north, and will be in walking or wheeling distance from North Street, the city centre, and Bedminster station and Temple Meads station. Being this close will enable and encourage the new residents of Bedminster Green to live active and low carbon lifestyles.
