Have your say on garage site.

Local people are being invited to attend a public exhibition to learn more about proposals to redevelop the Hartwell Garage site on Newbridge Road, Bath.

The scheme includes plans for 105 private residential apartments, alongside the creation of purpose built student accommodation. The scheme will also include an element of employment space, with a coffee shop of 1,500 sq. ft proposed for the site.

There will be parking for both the residential and retail elements of the scheme.

This provision will provide much needed housing for the city, including affordable homes, as well as new employment opportunities. The creation of 186 beds of student housing at this site will also protect existing housing stock in the city from becoming HMOs and will support the two universities within the city.

A spokesperson for Oakhill Group Limited said, “The consultation process taking place provides us with an exciting opportunity to share the proposals for the redevelopment of this site.

“This development is significant to Bath, allowing us to provide much-needed housing for the city, whilst also supporting the two universities with their student population.

“We hope that as many people as possible will come along to the exhibition to talk to the members of the project team, and learn more about the proposals for the Hartwell site.”

A public information event on the proposals is to be held at Weston Methodist Church, Newbridge Hill, Bath, on Tuesday 29th January between 3pm and 7pm. Members of the public will be able to come and discuss the scheme with the project team.

All of the consultation information will also be available via www.newbridgeroadbath.info from Tuesday 29th January.

  1. Affordable homes are standardly promised in these schemes, but developers are very good at wriggling out of this requirement. Student rooms and coffee shops on the other hand are thought of as a licence to print money!
