​Ground is broken as 29 new affordable homes are built in Bristol.

Solon Housing Association and E G Carter & Co Ltd are excited to be delivering 29 properties at its Bedminster Road development, due for completion in early 2021.

On Thursday 22nd August an official ground-breaking event was held to celebrate the start of construction. The original building, a former petrol filling station has been demolished and will be replaced with one, two and three bedroom properties all for rent.

Phil Barnes, Associate Director at E G Carter & Co Ltd said “We are delighted to have worked collaboratively with Solon and Bristol City Council to obtain planning permission for this exciting affordable housing development. Completion of this project will surpass the 200th affordable home delivered within a BS post code over recent years as we look ahead to a significant increase in delivery over the next year or two.”

The ceremony provided an opportunity for all members of the design and construction team to celebrate what will be a prestigious project for all involved.

Completion of the £3.9M development is expected in early 2021.
