Affordable housing development earmarked for St John’s Lane A disused health centre in St John’s Lane has been earmarked for an affordable housing development, South Bristol Voice can reveal. Bristol-based housing association, United Communities, will be taking forward the development on the corner of St John’s Lane and Wedmore Vale, and a public consulation event will be held early this month to discuss plans with local residents. If the application is approved,

the building - which has stood empty for some time since the new Marksbury Road medical practice opened in 2018 - will be demolished and rebuilt to deliver around 30 units, accommodating around 80 Bristol residents. It will be 100 per cent affordable housing and provide a mix of housing to accommodate those currently on the housing waiting list, as well as shared ownership homes for people who cannot

afford a home on the open market. Bristol currently has 12,000 people on the waiting list for affordable housing. The public consultation event will be held at Windmill Hill Community Centre on September

4, 3.30-6.30pm. Residents will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the design options and meet the team from United Communities. Refreshments will be provided and children are welcome to attend.


Completely new bread range from August 2019!
