Plans for new retirement homes at Brabazon at Filton Airfield

YTL Developments has submitted a planning application for 239 one and two-bedroom properties.

Residents will be able to relax in the landscaped grounds, take a walk around a meadow designed to encourage wildlife and enjoy the sunshine from a roof garden.

Sebastian Loyn, YTL planning and development director, said: “Internally, the carefully considered communal spaces will include a comfortable lounge in which to play games or to gather with friends, a restaurant and bar to act as a social hub, as well as a library and wellbeing suite with spa facilities and activity rooms.

“There will also be an extensive calendar of events – such as games of boules and yoga on the outdoor lawns – that is designed to foster the social bonds and a sense of community that is central to the vision for Brabazon.

“The design is inspired by the style of historic ‘mansion houses’ that encourage communities to grow around shared facilities.

“The brick buildings are fully-accessible, feature a recessed colonnade to the central courtyard, and reflect a continuation of the design style that has proved so popular to date at The Hangar District – the first residential phase at Brabazon.

“The properties continue to set the standard on sustainability, with no fossil fuel-based heating, while generous balconies and picture windows maximise natural light.”

Planning reference is P23/01462/

The plans are part of a major development to transform the historic airfield into a thriving new neighbourhood.

Independent stores are planned along with restaurants, parks and open public squares.

More than £100 million is being invested to improve local infrastructure – a new railway station will connect Brabazon to Bristol Temple Meads in less than 15 minutes and a dedicated metrobus will run straight to the city centre.

The new neighbourhood will also be criss-crossed by walking routes and cycle paths.
