This is another partnership between Havard Tisdale and Mansell – this time with the Southampton office. It is a brand new village centre for a major urban extension of over 1000 homes being provided by Redrow, Taylor Wimpey and Elan Homes on the border between Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
Many of these homes are already built and occupied, so the local residents are keen to see this project underway. As well as a range of local facilities, the centre will offer apartment living to around 130 households, some of which will be designated as retirement homes and a proportion as affordable.
The key commercial anchors will be a convenience store, a bar restaurant, hot food outlets (all nationally recognised) plus a new surgery, specialist gym and pre-school nursery.
As well as being Mansell’s lead development consultant we are also providing key services in relation to affordable housing negotiations.
The planning application is imminent and hopefully work can commence on site later this year as the scheme already has master plan approval.
