325 Fishponds Road
Bristol City Council have agreed the sale of the land to Bristol CLT for £1 to develop affordable housing. Bristol CLT have developed a member led design for the site which will provide a mix of affordable housing with members completing works to their homes themselves. A planning application is due in the Spring 2013. There will be a new terrace at the rear of the site with six 3 bedroom homes. The existing building will be retained and converted to provide six one bedroom duplex flats. Bristol CLT is also progressing plans for a communal garden for residents at the front of the site.
Living at 325 Fishponds Road information sheet.
If you are interested in being part of the resident community at 325 Fishponds Road you should first consider if you will be eligible. Because Bristol CLT is a recipient of public funds it needs to be able to demonstrate the housing need and eligibility of its members. If you intend to rent you will need to register with Home Choice Bristol to ensure you were on the Bristol housing register. Regardless of your situation, you will still be registered within a banding which will be determined by your level of housing need. If you intended to buy an equity stake, you will need to register with both Home Choice Bristol and South West Homes.
Restrictions around the occupancy levels within the houses and flats within the
scheme will also apply. The rules are slightly different depending on whether your intention is to buy an equity stake or rent. In terms of buying, the rule for an individual or a couple is one bedroom plus a spare bedroom. In terms of renting, if you were applying as an individual or a couple you would be eligible for one room only.
