Work has got underway on Bath’s latest housing development at Mulberry Park, thanks to fresh funding from the Government.
The Housing and Planning Minister, Brandon Lewis, joined the ground breaking ceremony on 31st March at the former Ministry of Defence site near Foxhill.
Curo has outline planning permission at Mulberry Park for up to 700 homes, a new primary school, nursery, community facilities and employment space.
This scheme will also help to create an integrated community with improved transport and infrastructure.
Detailed planning permission has also been granted for the first 275 new homes at Mulberry Park. Of these homes 30 per cent will be affordable including homes for social rent and shared ownership.
Victor da Cunha, Chief Executive of Curo, said, “The new housing, school and community facilities at Mulberry Park, combined with our ambitions to regenerate part of the existing Foxhill estate, will enable us to provide quality homes that meet people’s needs now and in the future.
“The scheme will also help create an integrated community with improved transport and infrastructure.”
