ZEDpods on Chalks Road, St. George

Following on from the Bristol Housing Festival expo in October, Bristol City Council committed to supporting the Festival and to make land available for innovation; and first up is the ZEDpods.

The ZEDpods will be placed on the Chalks road carpark adjacent to St George Park and is pioneering a way to create 100% affordable and low carbon housing.

This environmental and socially focused development will deliver much needed housing in the area for young professionals in need of affordable housing and those at risk of housing crisis. By creating a mixture of these tenures, a new community model will be created to ensure that the support networks are in place for the tenants, to improve security and safety as tenants are likely to be home at different times of the day, and to increase tenant interaction and neighbourliness.

The scheme will offer something truly innovative, a first for the city and of its kind in the UK. This innovative development will rethink existing land use in a central location demonstrating new thinking to help solve the housing crisis, whilst at the same time providing beautiful, low carbon housing.

The project team includes the Bristol Housing Festival, ZED Pods Ltd, a Bristol based Housing Association, the YMCA and Bristol and Bath Regional Capital.
