Community building

Dandara has spent time understanding the economic, social and environmental needs of the surrounding area. It is now working with local people to build on this understanding and identify opportunities to ensure the local community benefits beyond the new homes.

Clarence Road by Dandara Living Community Vision

Our research

Includes reviewing data from all levels of government alongside our wider understanding of Bristol and this area – has suggested the top four needs are:

  1. Addressing crime and community cohesion
  2. Educational attainment and child poverty
  3. Tackling housing shortages and homelessness
  4. Meeting the need for quality green space

We are engaging local and city-wide organisations with expertise and experience in these areas to understand what we can do to help address these needs. We also want to know what you think so please complete the feedback form .

The opportunities could include:

  • Potential to use space on the ground floor for community uses
  • ‘Designing out crime’ by working with the police, community leaders and local people to create plans that make the area safer and more welcoming
  • New planting and green spaces to benefit people’s wellbeing and the environment
  • Exploring how we can support organisations who are already addressing some of these needs, to amplify their work

The outcomes and identified initiatives will be detailed in a social value statement submitted alongside the planning application but we will be updating this page as the project progresses to help make this truly collaborative.
