The Willows, Bristol

 

 

Curo is working with contractor Jehu Group to deliver 57 new affordable homes at The Willows regeneration project in Lawrence Weston, Bristol.

The scheme includes a mix of one, two and three bedrooms flats, houses and maisonettes delivered across three adjoining sites:

  • 13 flats to be created by converting our existing office block at Holly House into a residential building
  • 17 apartments to be built on the Long Cross pub site
  • 27 houses and maisonettes to be built on the land of the former Rockwell care home

All new homes at The Willows will be affordable housing. The 13 flats we're creating through the conversion of the Curo office block will be social housing for people over 55, while the remaining 44 homes will be available to rent at affordable rates and to buy through the low cost home ownership scheme, Shared Ownership.

Homes at The Willows will be let through Bristol City Council's choice-based letting scheme, HomeChoice.

Shared Ownership homes will sold via our sales website and Help to Buy Agent for the South.

The development is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2022.

Why redevelop the area?

Our office block at Holly House was underused. The land once occupied by the Long Cross pub and the former Rockwell care home were vacant at a time when local housing demand in the area is high.

It is our priority as a housing association to provide much-needed new homes for local families and the scheme offers a great opportunity to create high quality affordable housing for the area.

How will this scheme benefit the community?

Alongside new homes, the scheme will also deliver increased security for our tenants at Holly House as well as the wider community by redeveloping vacant and underused land. We aim to provide a mix of house-types and tenures, helping to create a thriving and sustainable community.
The proposed site layout and design of the new homes will also enhance and contribute positively to the appearance the area.

Curo appointed Jehu Group as the main contractor for this scheme. For any enquiries about construction works, contact Jehu on 0117203 5060.
