We're working in partnership with Barratt Homes to build 65 homes on the site of the former St Matthias College in Fishponds.
The development is a mixture of 50 rented properties and 15 shared ownership properties. The first four shared ownership properties were made available in May 2016. Details about the other shared ownership properties will be available soon.
To date, 36 homes have been completed. The remaining homes are due to be ready in a number of phases between up to 2020.
Number of properties: 65
Start on site: 2015
Completion: 2016 - 2020
Project cost: £13m
Customers for six of our newest homes are getting ready to move in after completing their tenancy workshop this week.
They’ll be moving into the latest six homes to be built on the site of the former St Matthias College in Fishponds. The workshop was a chance for them to learn more about the features of their new homes, meet their new neighbours and staff and ask any questions.
Lettings Officer Lorna Sherwood said: “The tenancy workshops we offer to customers moving into our new build homes are an important part of the process. We’re not just focussed on building new homes; we want to create communities and workshops like this help people get to know their neighbours and get life in their new homes off to a great start.”
In total we’re taking on 65 of the homes being built on the site by national homebuilder Barratt. Seventeen homes have already been completed and around another 25 will be finished in stages later this year. The homes are part of our ongoing plans to increase the number of affordable properties we build each year.
