BoKlok UK achieves planning acceptance on first UK development

BoKlok UK Ltd, the sustainable, quality, and low-cost home provider jointly owned by Skanska and IKEA, are pleased to announce the unanimous decision by Bristol City Council’s planning committee to approve its first UK housing development at Airport Road, Bristol.

The new development in Bristol will provide 173 much needed family homes, which will be available for market sale as well as social housing for Bristol City Council.

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. On Wednesday 24 June, Bristol City Council’s Planning Committee unanimously approved resolution to grant planning consent for new BoKlok homes at Airport Road, Bristol.

“We particularly welcome the councillors’ positive comments on the child and family 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 make 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.”

BoKlok’s first homes are expected to complete in 2021.
