The next phase of the Finzels Reach regeneration project which will see 297 new homes built on a derelict Bristol site has been recommended for approval.

Phase one of the project, which is nearly complete, is situated next to Castle Park and has more than 400 new apartments - 100 of which are affordable.

All of the 'for-sale' apartments were sold within eight-months of the launch of the Castle Wharf Finzels Reach complex.

The next build-to-rent scheme would be built on the old Avon Fire & Rescue derelict site next to Temple Meads.

Gavin Bridge, executive director at Cubex, said: "We are very keen to continue the regeneration at Finzels Reach by replacing poor quality, concrete structures with high quality homes, offices and public spaces. We have managed to line up both the partners and the funding to get this site moving and everything is now in place for us to start work, if we get planning consent next week."
