April 2021: Fishponds Development Completed

April 2021

The completion and sale of Bristol Together’s new build development on Staple Hill Road, Fishponds took place at the beginning of April 2021.

The scheme consists of 5 one-bedroom and 1 two-bedroom apartments on the site of a former mixed-use derelict building on the main street in Fishponds.

All the apartments were sold ‘off-plan’ to Brighter Places (formerly Southwest Solon Housing Association and United Utilities Housing Association ) for affordable rented homes in the Fishponds area and were completed on time and to a high standard.

The project enabled the employment and training of 5 recently released prisoners over a 15 month period.  During their time on the project, these individuals were able to learn a range of building trades, including groundworks/ foundations, bricklaying, carpentry, plastering and decorating.

Paul Morgan, Bristol Together’s Managing Director said “This is our third new build development.  Not only have we provided essential real jobs for ex-offenders committed to turning around their lives, over the last 3 years we have created 22 new affordable homes in areas of acute social housing need”.
