Bristol Bs6

Recommended Posts

And how many unfinished in the city centre? :lol:

I found a floor plan for one of the new 'prestigious' new developments in Bristol the other day. It made me feel claustrophobic just to look at it!! I can see a lot of them staying insold for a VERY long time. I can't believe they get planning permission for more and more of these things!

Actually government planning policy encourages this kind of development (minute flats on brownfield land [ crap land that no-one wants because it is next to a municipal dump/motorway/railway line]) and forbids the building of family homes on green belt land:

Forum Response: British Property Federation

A spokesman for the BPF told ePolitix.com: "The British Property Federation supports sustainable land use and specifically the Government's policy of directing 60 per cent of new housing development to brownfield land.

'It is evidence that this is a government which has left its ideals behind; which is happy to create special cases for the most privileged members of society while relegating the rank and file to high-density developments on brownfield sites.' (9)

H9 HIGH DENSITY HOUSING

OTHER THAN IN AREAS IDENTIFIED FOR LOW DENSITY HOUSING AND IN SOME FLAT CHARACTER AREAS, HOUSING DEVELOPMENT AT HIGHER DENSITIES IN EXCESS OF 50 DWELLINGS PER HECTARE WILL BE PERMITTED

Always found it amusing working in Cotham , move the house 100yds and it would be in St.Pauls , be a differenr price then.

Yeah, there's some real bargains to be had there. You can buy a 2-up-2-down terrace house just off Ashley Road (where that bloke got stabbed to death at the weekend) for around 150k...

For those that know Bristol, I know it looks like that house is in St Pauls, but it's not. Really. It's in St Agnes. The estate agent told me. It's a completely different place. A long, long way away from the drug dealing, gang wars and prostitution. You hear? It's St Agnes.

hehe, thats like a flat i viewed on Albany Road..apparently it's Montpelier but it's just round the corner from St Pauls and Ashley Road. And £118,000 for a 1 bed flat? i don't think so..not there any way.
