Planning application granted for the next phase of new homes at Brabazon

7TH JULY 2023

South Gloucestershire Council has approved plans to deliver the next phase of new homes at Brabazon as the thriving new neighbourhood for Bristol continues to take shape.

The new homes retain many of the distinctive features of The Hangar District

The plans for the new phase – created by award-winning local architects, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios – aim to foster a strong sense of community. The new homes are designed on a network of "living streets", with residents able to enjoy expanded access to outdoor spaces that bring people together, including shared gardens, public squares and play areas for children.

The houses themselves feature picture windows to maximise natural light and incorporate clever layouts and sustainable features as standard. The phase will exclude gas-based heating entirely, instead utilising air source heat pumps to reduce reliance on natural resources.

Sebastian Loyn, Planning and Development Director at YTL Developments, expressed his excitement, stating:

"This is the next chapter in creating a thriving new neighbourhood for Bristol. We continue to innovate, creating new styles of living spaces, streets and public realm.

"These new homes at Brabazon are unique within Bristol. We believe that places are as much about people as they are about buildings, which is why the design for the latest phase focuses on fostering a new community at Brabazon.

"Brabazon is being transformed into the most dynamic new city district in the South West. With the supersonic YTL Arena, Brabazon Park, Hangar 16U, a new rail station, and a MetroBus all scheduled for completion in the coming years, these homes are set to be among the most desirable addresses in the city."

Construction on this next phase of new homes is scheduled to begin later this Summer, with the first homes scheduled for completion in 2025.
