We are really pleased to announce that the East Street Mews project has now been granted planning permission to create affordable apartments in Bedminster, Bristol.

This is the culmination of a huge amount of pro bono work by our all of our project partners, each of which has played an important role in the development of these vital homes for young people who have experienced homelessness within the city.

Paul Smith, councillor and cabinet member for housing at Bristol City Council, said: “Our big gap in housing for the homeless is ‘move on’ from the hostels. This amazing project fronted by Cubex, LandAid and many other partners meets that key need. I hope we can replicate this is other locations across the city. A real public, private and voluntary sector success.”

We would like to particularly highlight the following partners for their expertise and advice which has been crucial in achieving a successful outcome to the planning process:

  • GVA, Planning Consultants
  • The Bush Consultancy, Architects
  • Hydrock, Structures & Services
  • JLL, Project Management
  • Simmons & Simmons, Legal Advice
  • TFT, Neighbourly Matters
  • Cook Brown,  Building Regulations
  • Carbon Consult, Environmental Matters

Thank you all.
