More homes at former garden centre

A FORMER garden centre building in Portishead is to be demolished and replaced with houses.

Bloor Homes has submitted a planning application to pull down the former Brackenwood Garden Centre at 131 Nore Road, which has been derelict for years, and build seven new three and four-bedroom homes in its place.

The houses will form part of the Brackenwood Gardens development, where 12 dwellings have already been built.

In a planning statement Bloor Homes, says it will consult with nearby residents throughout the planning process and the input of the community will be sought. A detailed leaflet has been produced and distributed to neighbouring properties to keep residents up to date with the latest plans and ask for feedback.

The developers say they will retain many of the landscape elements of the site, they will enhance the area with strategic planting and trees which form a natural screen for the development will remain in place.
