The Hengrove Park site includes over 24 hectares of high quality parkland, a new district centre with retail and commercial uses and several distinct character areas.
New homes will be a mix of houses and apartments, market and affordable, ranging from 2-4 storeys with the opportunity for some 5 storeys at key locations. The park retains the memory of the airfield’s runway and the best of the existing landscape, providing a combination of formal and informal spaces and is also designed to accommodate large scale flood events, with landscaped areas that will naturally flood and drain away in response to the weather conditions.
Development wrapping around the existing car parks creates the opportunity for employment and retail uses fronting onto a new central square, leading to a central avenue which extends through the masterplan, intersecting with the runway park. The old running track is reimagined as a formal crescent of houses with a village green at its heart.
The Hartcliffe Campus
The Hartcliffe Campus masterplan is centred around a new pollinator park, opening out onto the Bridge Learning Campus. The park will be home to new habitats for wildlife to flourish and connect into the wildlife corridor to the north. Apartment buildings front onto William Jessop Way, creating overlooking and security on the street. The streets have shared surfaces, trees and soft landscaping, promoting safe environments and areas for children to play. The wildlife corridor will be retained and enhanced.
