Developer to unveil plans for Keynsham K2A site
Published on: 04 Jul 2013
A developer is giving Keynsham residents the first look at its plans to build around 268 homes off Charlton Road.
Barratt Homes was the successful bidder when Bath and North East Somerset Council sold the site, and now the company is holding a public exhibition on July 11 before it submits a planning application in late summer.
As part of its plan for the site – known as K2A – the developer is proposing a new roundabout at the entrance to the site from Charlton Road, a contribution to Castle Primary School’s expansion and an upgrade for Holmoak Road play centre.
Homes on the site would include one, two, three, four and five bedroom houses with gardens, 94 of which would be affordable housing, says the developer.
“From discussions with Keynsham Town Council and B&NES councillors, we are getting a good idea of what’s important to the local community,” said Barratt Homes Bristol’s technical director David Bond.
“We also want to hear directly from local residents. So, at the public exhibition we will be presenting our initial designs and hoping to get feedback from the local community. That feedback will be used to help shape our final plans, so I would encourage people to come along to find out more and let us know their views.
“We have extensive experience in delivering high quality residential development within the Bath and North East Somerset Council area and we firmly believe this site will be an example of our excellent work. We hope the event on July 11 is well attended as Barratt Homes is keen to engage with the community to help shape the development proposals.”
The exhibition on Thursday, July 11, will take place at St Francis Church Hall, Warwick Road from 3-8pm.
