Concerned about housing in Southmead? Want to be part of an innovative solution?

Southmead Development Trust (SDT) are working in conjunction with the Bristol Housing Festival to explore the possibility of creating a co-living community on a small area of land adjacent to the Greenway Centre, on Doncaster Rd.


We are currently investigating creating 8 or 9 affordable new studio apartments, specifically for individuals from the local area who are keen to play an active role in the local community at the Greenway Centre. We are assessing whether this housing could be delivered using ‘modular’ construction techniques and a community-led housing model.


The designs explore the potential for a shared community kitchen and laundry room, as well as a working garden, which would additionally become a new facility for the wider community at the Greenway Centre.


There will be wider community consultation taking place in the coming months – currently we are looking for residents who might be interested in being involved with this project and the co-living lifestyle – if that is you, get in touch with Hannah from the Regeneration Team: ~ 0117 950 3335
