Phase one of Brabazon scheme on Filton airfield features nearly 300 homes

The first phase of Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ redevelopment of a historic former airfield near Bristol, featuring more than 44 “affordable” homes, has been given the green light by planners.

The Brabazon housing scheme on the northern outskirts of the city has been masterplanned by Allies & Morrison. It will eventually see more than 2,600 homes built on the 354-acre site of Filton airfield, which played an important role in the Second World War and decades later became the birthplace of supersonic aircraft Concorde.

The initial phase features 278 homes, 16% of which will be “affordable” to buy or rent.
