Development

Castle Park

  • Status: Competition winners Groupwork & McGregor Coxall.  Pre-application enquiry submitted to Council

  • Location: Central, Bristol

  • Partner: Partner procurement in progress

Goram Homes has delivered an energy centre in Castle Park in partnership with Bristol City Council and Vital Energi that includes the biggest water source heat pump in England to generate renewable energy for the Bristol Heat Network.

The energy centre completed in June 2022. In 2021, Goram Homes and Bristol Housing Festival launched a design competition to deliver a residential property plus other mixed-use spaces above the heat pump. The competition winners were announced in Spring 2022 and a design team has been appointed to take the scheme forward to RIBA Stage 2 and has submitted a pre-application enquiry to Bristol City Council in Autumn 2022. Public consultation and engagement will commence once a partner has been appointed and pre-application feedback is received.

Building sustainable communities

Goram Homes always aspires to exceed planning policy in terms of delivery of affordable homes. Across our current programme we have a target of delivering 47% of our homes as affordable homes as outlined in our Business Plan.

Our developments will include homes of different sizes for market sale, social rent and affordable home ownership.

The number of affordable homes and the tenure split shown in the graph reflects our Business Plan and has been estimated based on initial capacity studies and policy requirements. We will update all figures annually, in line with business planning, or when planning has been granted.
