Construction Enquirer NewsRead MorePlanning consent granted for BoKlok UK’s first development

The BoKlok UK joint venture owned by Skanska and IKEA has been granted planning consent for its first housing development in Bristol.

The scheme will provide 173 family homes which will be available for market sale as well as support social housing schemes by Bristol City Council and local housing associations.

Graeme Culliton, BoKlok UK Managing Director and Country Manager said: “We are delighted that we are able to bring forward our first project in the UK.

“We particularly welcome the councillors’ positive comments on the family and child friendly design of our development, as well as their recognition that we strive to build inclusive communities.

“Throughout the evolution of this project we have partnered with the local community, Bristol City Council, and the Bristol Housing Festival to create quality, sustainable homes at a lower price.

“We continue to work with the planning officers to ensure that the proposed cycleway is safe for pedestrians and cyclists as they travel alongside our development.”

Construction is set to start shortly and BoKlok’s first homes are expected to complete in 2021.
