LaunchPad Public Consultation

Posted on: 26 November

We are looking to create an interesting development opportunity on the car park at the bottom of Alexandra Park, Fishponds BS16. For more information, read on and also come to our community consultation on Saturday 1st December from 10am until  12 noon at St Matthias Academy, opposite the car park.

LaunchPad housing is for the young independent adult, ready for a new start in life in modern and inspired accommodation.  It is here to help people break out of student rentals, supported housing or overpriced accommodation. LaunchPad is brought to you by innovative collaborators, 1625 Independent People, University of Bristol Students Union and United Communities.  We aim to bring people together, help increase diversity in communities and build wellbeing for the best start in life.


We believe in solutions that support a young person’s journey and which create a better sense of community in Bristol.  By integrating young people who are particularly passionate about connecting with others and proactively building community is one step toward our end goal.

LaunchPad will:

  • Be sensitive to surrounding homes
  • Be in keeping with the local environment
  • Add to the community
  • Back on to the playing fields
  • Make better use of the car park where it is being built
  • Add value to the physical neighbourhood/environment

We are looking to apply for planning and start work on the site in spring  2019 with young people moving in from September 2019.

If you have any comments let us know by 5th December 2018.

Date:  Saturday 1st December 2018

Time: 10am – 12pm
