Current developments

We’re passionate about developing more housing in our region and addressing the growing affordability crisis. And we’re keen to build further afield. Because we know the housing crisis is bigger than our local area.

That’s why we now work with Bristol City Council to help provide more affordable homes in a city where there are so few. While staying true to the demands of our local development programme.

The Chocolate Factory, Bristol

A development of 36 affordable homes on the site of the former Elizabeth Shaw chocolate factory in Bristol. The new homes will consist of 15 one-bedroom and 21 two-bedroom apartments and will all be available for shared ownership. The former chocolate factory was such an influential building so to help ease the transition and keep part of the industrial heritage, some of the original factory buildings are being retained.
