Bristol City Council has been working with local community organisations to gain a better understanding of what housing is needed in the area.

We work alongside developers to include a range of housing types and tenures within developments across BS3, including homes for rent, purpose-built student homes, family homes, and homes for social rent.

The Whitehouse Street regeneration includes plans for 2,000 new homes.

The provision of housing, including affordable housing and homes for social rent, remains a priority for the council, and we will seek to work with developers to explore how additional affordable housing can be delivered, such as working in partnership with a registered provider with access to other sources of grant funding such as that available from Homes England for the delivery of affordable housing.
