Haberfield House 

Bristol Charities will be developing an Extra Care Scheme for Older People on Hollway Road. Our population is ageing and people will need extra support to help them maintain active, safe and independent lives as they get older. We feel that the new development in Stockwood provides a great opportunity to enhance local facilities and provide better housing for people as they get older or their health circumstances change. 

The proposed scheme at Stockwood is on the junction between Hollway Road, Stockwood Road and Materman Road and shares a boundary on the East of the site with Bluebell Gardens - an existing scheme for older people. The site was chosen for the scheme because of the opportunity to link with the existing extra care project at Bluebell Gardens and also because it is in the heart of the community.

The development of a three storey building will provide 60 homes for Older People with Care available to those who need it. There will be a mixture of 1 and 2 bedroom flats available to rent and a number of flats will also be designed to be fully wheelchair accessible. 

The building will provide a range of communal spaces and support facilities for staff and residents. These include a communal lounge and dining area and hobby room. As part of the development, parking and a communal garden will be provided. 

It is important to us that we work in partnership with the local community, and that they are involved at an early stage to help inform the proposals as they develop.

Standard Almshouse application criteria apply: 

  • Over 60 years of age
  • In housing need
  • Must have an assessed need for 5 hours domiciliary care per week

Please note we are not currently receiving referrals for this development. Once the referral criteria has been agreed, we will publish details here.

 Design and Access Statement 

The Stockwood Project (Haberfield House) Starts on Site

The Stockwood Project has now been officially named Haberfield House in recognition of the contribution to the project, made possible by the recent merger of Lady Haberfield Almshouse Charity with Bristol Charities. 

The project, a development of 60 one and two bedroom apartments with a range of communal spaces and support facilities is now on site. Keepmoat has been awarded the contract for the development of the site which is expected to be completed in the summer of 2018.

Revised Completion Date and Handover for Haberfield House Project 

The former Bowmead Elderly Persons Home was finally demolished by 4th August 2017 and the site declared free from asbestos on the 18th August 2017 which enable groundworks to commence in earnest. 

Our contractors Keepmoat are now able to progress with the works unhindered, and the project is now gathering pace, as you can see from our pictures. In the next month or so we expect to see the continuation of bricklaying activities and the installation of ground to first floor precast concrete staircases. 

Our new revised completion date and handover is mid November 2018. Please do keep an eye on our website for further progress updates.
