One Lockleaze achieves Building with Nature award 

Share This Story

Goram Homes has achieved a Building with Nature Full Award for One Lockleaze. Building with Nature is a voluntary scheme that sets best practice standards for quality green infrastructure. It awards developments that will benefit both people and the planet.

These standards are raising the bar for placemaking, and help developers create communities that will benefit their new residents and the nature around them. The 12 standards cover the themes of Wellbeing, Water and Wildlife.

The award praised the accessible and diverse green features planned for future One Lockleaze residents and the local community in Lockleaze.

This includes a community park in the heart of the development, which will create a wildlife corridor between Stoke Park and Concorde Way. The HTA Design landscape team designed the park with a range of new habitat types, dedicated wildlife areas, planted water drainage features and a range of play facilities.

Our development partner Countryside Partnersips will complete the first homes on our One Lockleaze site by the end of the year. The project is regenerating a former school site into 268 new, high-quality homes, and more than half will be affordable. The scheme features a range of bespoke, eco-focused one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom homes in a brand new Lockleaze neighbourhood.

Darren Dancey, Managing Director of Countryside Partnerships West, said:

“We are hugely proud to have been awarded the Building with Nature Full Award at One Lockleaze, our first development with Goram Homes, in Bristol. The homes at One Lockleaze have been designed to suit a sustainable community – affordable, eco-friendly and socially integrated. We look forward to launching One Lockleaze in the coming months and seeing the site develop into a thriving community.”

Elaine Olphert, Technical Director at Goram Homes, said:

“One Lockleaze is a great example of how partnership working can deliver a high standard of green infrastructure for people and wildlife. Building with Nature standards are raising the bar for placemaking and I’m very proud that our new scheme will benefit new residents and the natural world.”

Landsmith Associates was the Building with Nature Assessor for the project. The accreditation is subject to post construction sign off.
