Elderberry Walk: creating communities within a community

Elderberry Walk: creating communities within a community

Posted 04/03/19

At HAB Housing, we value the creation of communities as well as beautiful and sustainable homes, and pride ourselves on our commitment to ensuring that new residents and locals feel at home in our developments.

HAB’s involvement in the design of this housing scheme Elderberry Walk in Bristol, will offer 161 mixed-tenures homes on the site of the old Dunmail Primary School, which has sat disused since 2006. Elderberry Walk will bring an attractive new residential location and green spaces into the established Southmead community.

As well as cycle paths and communal children’s play areas, the development will feature a wide promenade and dog walking routes, ensuring that it fits easily into the surrounding area, and remains a communal space for local people.

The design is sympathetic to the North Bristol area, so that it will not stand out from neighbouring houses. This kind of infrastructure helps to create an inclusive community feel, and with priority buying offered to existing residents and workers in the area, we hope to see Elderberry Walk flourish in the community.

For more information about how we design our schemes with communities in mind, you can read our Let’s Talk HAB blog, and to register your interest in a home at Elderberry Walk, find the full spec here.
