News: 24 April 2018Planning permission secured for new homes in Portishead

The regeneration of Portishead took another step forward recently after we secured the approval of 33 residential units, including much needed affordable housing, for Churngold Construction Ltd.

North Somerset Council gave the go-ahead at Planning Committee on the 11th April 2018, for the construction of both a four-storey and three-storey building at Wyndham Way in Portishead. The land had been identified for housing allocation as part of the North Somerset Site Allocations Development Plan, which has now been adopted.

Our Bristol based Planners and Architects designed both of the buildings, that feature one and two-bedroom homes, to act as a focal feature through the tree screen from the roundabout.

The contemporary design, using simple clean details, creates a unique sense of place and identity which maintains a dialogue and connection with the surrounding area and other adjacent homes.

The scheme has also been designed to provide much needed market and affordable housing to help meet the districts’ current and historic under supply. There will be 24 open-market units and a further eight social rent units within the development.

Planning Associate, Peter Roberts said: “The new housing development in Portishead has been designed by our Architects to take the form of a crescent.  The high-quality design will form a key gateway to the town, on what was un-used land that had previously been earmarked for an office building several years ago.”  


We have a long history of working in Portishead. We were appointed 23 years ago by Persimmon Homes to regenerate one of the largest brownfield sites in the South West, Ashlands, to provide a thriving community, reviving Portishead’s industrial heartland.

This new community has literally risen from the ashes as part of a wider regeneration of the industrial docks and now comprises of 4,300 new homes, a new marina, district centre, shops, cafes as well a 40-hectare nature reserve, play areas and open spaces.
