HCA unveils new development plan for former Bristol college site
Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has unveiled a development plan, which will transform a former college site in Bristol, UK.
According to the plan, a new school will be constructed along side a mix of homes, community facilities, business and employment space at Marksbury Road, Windmill Hill.
The proposed transformation of the college site includes the construction of a 420-place primary school, based within the college building fronting onto Marksbury Road. It will be partially refurbished to accommodate the facility.
Upto 85 homes, including 15 ‘self build’ plots, which form an early pilot of projects will be built through the HCA’s Custom Build initiative. In addition to that, upto 900 square metre of employment space will also be created within the former college engineering block. A new health centre and pharmacy will be constructed with support and investment from local practices.
For the convenience of the residents, the proposed scheme will also feature an improved pedestrian and cycle access to the Northern Slopes.
The outline planning application has already been submitted to the Bristol City Council.
