Hengrove Park


  • Outline planning approved for 1435 homes to be built over the next 10 years
  • Half will be for social rent or shared ownership
  • First 53 council homes currently being built by The Hill Group
  • Our developer for the wider site is Countryside Partnerships
  • Phase 1 reserved matters plans have now been submitted

Our landmark Hengrove Park development will create a new community of 1435 high quality, thoughtfully designed new homes for south Bristol. Each home will have high environmental standards, helping lower energy bills for residents. And an on-site energy centre will provide each household with low carbon heating and hot water too.

At the centre will be a high quality public park. We’ll retain and improve 22 hectares of parkland, that’s around 30 football pitches, and we’ll link it to local habitats like the Hengrove Mounds. This will both improve the ecology of the area and better connect Hengrove Park to other well-loved local spaces.

Plans include a new community centre, sports pavilion, Scout hut, commercial and office space, education space and more.

About Phase 1

  • Hengrove development area map with red outline showing the boundary.

We’re building this new community at Hengrove Park in phases and will engage with the local community at every stage.

We’ve now submitted Reserved Matters plans for Phase 1, which includes:

– 209 homes to the East of South Bristol Community Hospital
– Improved parkland to the West of the St Giles Estate
– A new energy centre to provide homes with low carbon heating and hot water

New homes will range from one-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom houses.

The park will define the quality and character of the whole development. From sociable spaces and picnic areas to play facilities for young people, our plans bring the community together in comfortable and inviting spaces.

Building sustainable communities

Goram Homes always aspires to exceed planning policy in terms of delivery of affordable homes.

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 the outline planning agreement and goes above policy requirements.

To find out more about affordable homes and tenures have a look at our FAQs.


*The tenure split for any additional affordable homes we deliver will vary for each site and will depend on the viability of the development, the availability of funding and the Registered Provider buying the homes from Goram Homes.
