Vistry Partnerships has exchanged contracts with Goram Homes to provide 268 new homes at Romney House, Bristol.
Romney House represents the first development brought forward by Goram Homes and the project will deliver 55% affordable housing via Bristol City Council. Homes will range from one bed flats to four bed family homes, with a mix of tenures including social rent and shared ownership, helping to attract a range of new residents and giving people a genuine chance to get on the housing ladder.
Goram Homes was founded in 2018 by Bristol City Council to increase the provision of new homes in the city and meet affordable housing requirements without compromising on build quality. This approach is aligned with Vistry Partnerships’ ethos to deliver vibrant, sustainable places to live, alongside making a positive contribution to local communities during, and after, project completion.
At the heart of the development is a new community park which will play a key role for the neighbourhood. The park will help form a wildlife corridor from Stoke Park through to Concorde Way and contribute to achieving the Council’s vision of a greener Bristol.
Works will commence 2021.
Steve Baker, Managing Director of Goram Homes said: “Our vision for Bristol is high quality, well designed homes in great locations surrounded by amazing green spaces. Vistry Partnerships are the ideal partner to deliver our first development in Lockleaze with their strong record of regeneration and knowledge of the city.”
In February 2021, Goram Homes was successful at The Bristol Property Awards, winning in two categories (Deal and Green Initiative), for its first development in Lockleaze, Bristol, in partnership with Vistry Partnerships West.
We’re proud of the reputation we’ve developed in Bristol for regenerating redundant land, transforming these places into high quality new communities that provide genuine opportunities for local people to live in them. Romney House is no different – working with Goram Homes we’re creating a new community with more than 140 affordable homes, alongside a new park which will greatly improve the quality of life for people living in and visiting the area.
