The Bedminster Green regeneration will transform five under-used brownfield sites into a thriving new urban community, with new homes, better transport connections and enhanced public spaces.
Dandara Living is the developer for two of those sites: one is our Little Paradise scheme already granted planning permission; this consultation website is all about ‘Plot 5’.
The Bedminster Green area sits between East Street and the railway line in Bedminster.
Bristol City Council has allocated the area for significant development. The Council considers Bedminster Green an opportunity to revitalise the area, breathe life into the local economy, and provide much-needed homes as part of a sustainable, well-connected new neighbourhood in the south of Bristol.
A framework was agreed between the Council and different developers, setting key parameters to ensure Bedminster Green works as an overall scheme. The Council has approved investing £6 million Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) in the River Malago restoration and transport improvements.
As well as new housing, Bedminster Green includes restoring the River Malago, enhancing public spaces, improving local public transport, and making walking and cycling easier and safer.
Of the five development sites, Dandara Living has already secured consent for one of those sites, 316 new homes at Little Paradise. Dandara Living will also be building the new two-storey, purpose-built car park for Bristol City Council on the existing site of the Little Paradise car park.
The Bedminster Green development area is shown on the illustration below.
We will be keeping our community consultation open for six weeks, until April 30th 2021.
We will review all feedback to inform our proposals before submitting a planning application to Bristol City Council.
Our proposal would see a high- quality development of affordable and market homes for sale, with significant investment in the existing green which sits at the heart of this important regeneration.
