£8M Housing Scheme in Bristol Awarded to Keepmoat

05 Dec 2016

Housing and regeneration specialist Keepmoat has secured a contract to deliver an £8million extra care housing scheme in Bristol, on behalf of Bristol Charities and Orchard Housing Society.

The three storey development on Holloway Road, Stockwood, will be built on the site of the disused Bowmead Residential Care Home which is planned for demolition in January 2017.

Created to feed the growing demand for retirement living in the area, the scheme will link in with an existing extra care nearby.

The new development will include 60 homes; a mixture of one and two bedroom wheelchair accessible flats for rent. Residents will also benefit from communal facilities including a lounge, dining area, salon, hobby room, garden and onsite care services.

This latest success comes at an exciting time for Keepmoat, as it continues its growth across the South West with an increasing pipeline of opportunities in the region.

Edward Rees, Regional Director at Keepmoat said, “We are thrilled to be working in partnership with Bristol Charities to create these much-needed new homes.

“This is a significant win for Keepmoat, and one that reinforces our commitment to the South West and our substantial growth plans for the region over the next few years.”

Anne Anketell, Chief Executive of Bristol Charities said, ““Homes for Older People are a key part of what we do and our team is looking forward to working with Keepmoat to develop high quality Extra Care Housing to meet local need.”

Building work is planned to begin in February 2017
