I’m also looking forward to the completion of our first homes in One Lockleaze this year and welcoming the first residents to this new neighbourhood of 268 homes, complete with a new wildlife corridor between the well-loved Stoke Park and Concorde Way.
At Goram Homes each one of us is motivated by building sustainable, beautiful homes for our city – in the numbers needed to support our growing population.
And I’m incredibly proud that almost half of our pipeline of homes to be built in the coming years will be affordable – either council housing, social rent through a housing association, or shared ownership. This is essential as we support Bristol City Council’s need to provide a safe and secure home for those on its housing waiting list.
It’s also been heartening to see the first cohort of students go through our skills academy, some of whom have already got employment on construction sites in the city. Wherever we build, we make sure our developments are making a positive impact, from skills training to conservation projects – and there’s much more to come.
Thank you for your ongoing support. We’ll keep building for Bristol.
