Thousands of new jobs are set to be created in Bristol following news that Barratt Developments is planning a brand-new community on the outskirts of the city.
A total of 2,450 new homes, including more than 800 affordable homes, are to be built at Ladden Garden Village in North Yate by Barratt Developments, which includes Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes.
Chris Burton, regional managing director for Barratt Developments, said confirmation of the new community at North Yate is good news for home buyers, the local jobs market and the wider community. He added: “Ladden Garden Village will create valuable new homes, provide a wealth of community facilities and employment space and it will support around 7,500 jobs over the lifetime of the development.”
Construction at Ladden Garden Village is due to start next spring with the 10-year project including a new primary school, extra care housing, a local centre and public open space. The land at North Yate has been allocated for new housing and received outline planning permission in 2015.
“With the purchase of the land now complete we move into more detailed planning stage. Currently we are delighted to be finalising plans for the first phase of 160 homes which will be released for sale next year”, added Burton.
